Traditional Italian Drinks
Drink in a little bit of Italy with a traditional coffee from Mandola’s. It all starts with a shot of espresso, creamy, dark and rich. The flavor of the bean is so important because it’s the basis of the flavor of any espresso drink. Try a shot of espresso to experience the culinary delights of coffee. Some like it with sugar or simply straight.
If you’re not feeling quite so bold, go for the caffé macchiato, cappuccino, of caffé Americano. Order it macchiato for a balance of espresso with just a dash of frothy milk so that you get the full flavor of the espresso. Cappuccinos are popular among coffee drinkers with their espresso base and foamy top. If you’re looking for coffee with a kick, try a caffé Americano, which is an espresso shot with added hot water.
American Espresso Drinks
If you like a slightly sweeter espresso drink, you’re in luck. For chocolate lovers, a caffé mocha is a rich, sweet drink made with a shot of espresso, steamed milk, and cocoa. Or try a caffé latte made with a shot of espresso and steamed milk. You can customize your caffé mocha or latte with a variety of flavored syrups like hazelnut, peppermint or caramel.
Fresh Brewed Coffee
Mandola’s also serves brewed coffees hot or cold. Enjoy a hot cup black or with milk and sugar, or a cold brew on a hot day. If you love lots of milk in your coffee, try a traditional caffé au Lait.
