Has any folk on the forum tried "Espresso with whipping cream?

Espresso con panna da montare
========================

fruit or sponge cake (genoise) with whipping cream is tasty. What about espresso with whipping cream?

I found following interesting thread:

Has any folk on the forum tried;
http://coffeegeek.com/guides/conpanna


Furthermore how about the disk "Espresso Whipped Cream" ?

If "instant espresso" is NOT available how to substitute it with the ground espresso on beans?

Can this thread work?

It is not new and many people like them otherwise, it would not still be around. Try it and see if you like them. Me, I am not fond of them.

Caffè con panna, just one of many espresso based coffee drinks from Italy. How about these?

  • Caffè corretto: espresso "rectified" with a shot of Grappa or brandy
  • Granita di caffè: stirred, frozen espresso
  • Caffè freddo: cold, sweetened espresso stretched with water
  • Caffè macchiato freddo: espresso with just a draft of cold milk
  • Maroccino: a tablespoon of molten chocolate is dispersed on the inside of a glass, then espresso is added and topped with two to three tablespoons of frothed milk and sprinkled with cocoa

So, what is the difference between a Macchiato and a Latte?

I just tried an Espresso Con Panna at the local Starbucks (I have yet to buy my own machine, still saving my pennies) and it was delicious.

It seems like Hedonism to me though, like the whipping cream dilutes or destroys the true flavor of the espresso.

I have yet to try a Maroccino... It sounds like something my wife would love. (She loves chocolate coffee.)

About 10oz of frothed milk.  There are 'standards' and then different places use these terms to refer to different things.  I, personally, use them only to reflect volume and not the consistency of the milk, but there are some who would infer that a cappuccino is stiff milk and latte is microfoam.  

Macchiato can mean anywhere from 1 tablespoon frothed milk on top of espresso shot up to 1:1 espresso:frothed milk.  Latte is shot of espresso brought up to fill a 10oz cup with frothed milk.  Cappuccino is in a 6-8oz cup.  You can use terms like 'wet' to mean microfoam, or 'dry' to mean stiff milk.

Or you can use starbucks lingo where carmel macchiato means 1 oz espresso : 14oz frothed milk : 4 tablespoons whipped cream : drenched in carmel syrup.

This is actually my preferred way of drinking espresso. I will either drink it black, black with a touch of sugar, black with a twist of lemon rind, or black with a bit of whipped cream on top.

I have my own whipper so I make the whipped cream myself. The hard part is finding cream without additives in the US. When I make it, I add a little powdered sugar and little homemade vanilla extract. I guess that might be called "chantilly" to be technical about it.

The traditional Italian recipes for espresso based milk drinks are:
  • Caffè espresso (25 ml) + 125 ml frothed milk = Cappuccino
  • Caffè espresso (25 ml) + 120 ml hot milk + 80 ml frothed milk = Latte macchiato
  • Caffè espresso (25 ml) + 5-15 ml frothed milk = Caffè (espresso) macchiato
  • Doppio (50 ml) + 200 ml hot milk (not necessarily topped with frothed milk) = Caffè latte

Rather than following recipes, we've put freshly made whipped cream (made with sugar and real vanilla) on black coffee and espresso for years.  Topped with a little cinnamon.   I also enjoy adding half and half to espresso on occasion just for something a little different.

While it can be fun to try coffee recipes, if you're drinking it at home isn't the ultimate goal just an enjoyable beverage?  I like experimenting.
