Welcome to the Coffee Bean Roasting House blog, where today, we’re diving into a question that intrigues many coffee enthusiasts: “What is a piccolo coffee?”. This tiny but mighty beverage has been gaining popularity among coffee connoisseurs worldwide, and for a good reason. Let’s explore this delightful coffee variant and see why it might just be the next big addition to your coffee repertoire!

What is a Piccolo Coffee?

A piccolo coffee is essentially a smaller version of a latte, typically served in a demitasse or small coffee cup. This drink, often mistaken for a mini latte, is much more than just a size variation. The piccolo latte is made with a single ristretto shot, topped with warm, silky milk. The result? A coffee that's strong in flavour but balanced with just the right amount of milk.

The Perfect Coffee Beans for Your Piccolo

As with any coffee, the choice of beans plays a pivotal role in crafting the perfect piccolo. At Coffee Bean Roasting House, we take pride in sourcing high-quality beans from across the globe, ensuring that your piccolo coffee is nothing short of extraordinary. Explore ourBlends Collection for a rich and harmonious piccolo, or ourSingle-Origin Collection for a more distinct and unique flavour profile.

Why Piccolo Coffee is Gaining Popularity

So, why is the piccolo coffee becoming a staple in the coffee scene? Its small size makes it a perfect mid-afternoon pick-me-up, offering a robust flavour without the volume of a larger coffee drink. This makes it an ideal choice for those who appreciate the espresso’s intensity but seek a smoother, creamier experience.

Making Piccolo Coffee at Home

Creating a piccolo coffee at home is a delightful and rewarding experience. Start with a fresh ristretto shot, using beans from Coffee Bean Roasting House for that impeccable taste. Then, steam your milk to perfection – remember, the key is to achieve that silky, microfoam texture. If you’re exploring milk alternatives, ourMilk Collection offers a variety of options to suit your preference.
