Breve Coffee

If you like a cappuccino but would like it to be creamier, try a Breve Coffee. This Italian espresso drink is similar to a cappuccino except that it uses half-and-half instead of milk, making it thicker and richer than a cappuccino. Wondering how to pronounce breve coffee? The answer is breh-vay caw-fee, though the drink is also often called a caffe breve.

What does breve mean? Breve has Latinate roots and means ‘short’ in English. There’s even a roastery called Breve Coffee, in homage to the famous drink. Note that half-and-half is harder to froth than milk, so it may take a few tries to make the perfect breve at home.
