Living Wisely: by Grayson Wise - A Good Cup of Joe Featured

Bonjour et joyeux été! (that means ‘hello and happy summer’ in French)

 

It is moi, Grayson, writing for my mom this week. Today, I am going to talk about coffeeOne of my absolute favorite things to do is just go coffee-shop-hopping and explore new places! If you’ve ever seen my Instagram feed, you know I do this quite often. There are tons of coffee related pictures. I may have a slight problem.

 

Anyways...

 

It can be a little confusing knowing what to order if you aren’t an avid coffee drinker. I am here to help with that. I am by no means an expert, but I feel like I can help the inexperienced at least a little bit! I’m going to talk about some pretty standard drinks that I am known to get (quite often, oops).

 

Okay, so common misconception is that a latte and a café au lait are the same thing. Well, I am here to tell you that is wrong. A latte is going to be made with espresso, steamed milk, and some froth. This is going to be a better drink to get if you’re less keen on a strong espresso flavor. A café au lait, on the other hand, is exactly its translated name: coffee with milk. There is no froth and no espresso, therefore it literally is a cup of coffee with milk. Still quite tasty, and if you’re not feeling the espresso vibe and don’t want plain black coffee, I’d go with this.

 

Next is the beloved cappuccino, well, beloved to me. This is kind of like a latte because it uses the same ingredients as a latte! The main difference is that a latte has more steamed milk! The cappuccino will be more froth and usually given in a smaller cup. The espresso flavor will be stronger than in a latte, so if you’re like my mom... stick with the latte!

 

Lastly, in warm weather, I am known to basically survive off of cold brew coffee. Cold brew is always brewed cold (hence the name) and so it will taste less bitter than traditional iced coffee. I’ll drink it straight, but my favorite thing is to put oat milk in my cold brew. Wow, I cannot express the love I have for this drink. I make it every morning and one for my mom too (she is as obsessed as me!). You can make cold brew at home very easily so this is definitely something to try if you’re looking to save a little money.

 

Happy coffee drinking, I wish you the best.

 

Bisous,
Grayson
