Breve Coffee – A Beautiful Mess


Café breve, or café breve as it is sometimes called, is a lesser-known but popular and truly delicious drink! It’s made with equal parts espresso and half-and-half (light cream). I think it tastes like a creamier version of cortado.

In some cafés, if you simply order a café or breve, they may make you a half-and-half latte instead of milk. But the traditional version is smaller in size and 1:1 ratio.

Best home espresso machines

  • Automatic espresso machine for cafe – My current device. It uses any whole beans, so if you use high quality beans, you will get a high quality espresso. It automatically makes espresso shots (no barista skills required) and includes a milk frother wand to heat and froth the milk. We have used this machine almost every day since we got it a year ago and we love it! Comes in three colors.
  • Stovetop espresso – This is the cheapest way to make espresso at home. It is labor intensive and you will also need a way to grind your beans to get the best results. But this is a classic method that works great when done well.
  • Breville Barista Touch -We bought this for a good friend as a wedding gift once and they said they loved it. It’s a sophisticated machine that will need some barista skills to operate, but it’s an excellent home espresso machine.
  • Nespresso Vertuo – For those who want an espresso maker that uses pods, this is my favorite. Depending on the capsule you use, it can make espresso or coffee.
