    Neither! :D Machiatto if you're going to a coffee shop. That has less adulterants.

    Mypref is a straight double shot of espresso, no flavorants, no cutting agents, nada, zilch.
    Straight down the hatch in one swig, like a cowboy knocking back whiskey in an old Western!

    If you must adulterate and are making it @ home, what we do for my wife is - add flavorants
    (cinnamon, cocoa powder, sweetener) to milk, foam the milk concoctio, and then add your double
    shot of espresso to the flavored milk foam. So-called "upside down." Then a shake or two extra of cocoa
    powder and cinnamon. A quick stir. Enjoy.

    That sounds good, especially with the cinnamon. I forget where we were, think it was the Florida Keys, we had coffee with Mexican chocolate dissolved in. Yummy!

    The condensed milk addition reminds me of Thai/Vietnamese coffee, which I like.

    Simply, a latte has more milk content.

    Nguyen "True Grit" and "Hanoi" are the two that I have tried. Nothing fancy, just grind about 16 gms and dump in my Jura S8 for a double espresso. I had read many bad comments about Robusta beans, ie "Taste like burnt rubber, etc." but these coffee beans taste OK to me.

    I like my own Chemex brewed coffee the best. I like to grind my own beans but have been having trouble getting Caffe Verona in Deca whole beans. I buy three or four 5 lb bags at a time. My wife and I make it very strong.

    I was at a tire store getting new tires for Wife's Cayenne S. Next door was a Starbucks....Haven't had one in 3(?) years. Ordered a PSL. It was incredibly bad. It was basically slightly flavored, diluted, warm milk with essentially no coffee flavor. Corporate must be cutting back on "expensive" components to blunt inflation curve.
