If you are looking for an elevated coffee experience in your own home, there is nothing quite like L’OR Espresso. Created in France in 1992, L’OR’s ambition has always been to offer the best coffee in the world. Since then, L’OR has seduced senses of the consumers by providing them with intense taste experiences for fantastic coffee moments. In 2010, L’OR Espresso launched- the first espresso capsule compatible with Nespresso®* Original coffee machines.
Types of Espresso Drinks Explained:
Ristretto -Coming from the Italian for “restrained, tight”, a Ristretto is a very short espresso. It is especially appreciated for its body and its aromatic richness.
Espresso – Also known by the name, tight coffee, it is appreciated for its generous smoothness and is made via high-pressure percolation (in Italian, espresso means “extracted by pressure”). Espressos are available in many blends, each one offering a specific intensity. L’OR Espresso preserves the essence of each blend in an aluminum capsule specifically packaged to release all of the espresso aromas in the cup.
Lungo – Also known as a long coffee, it is made with twice as much water running through the same amount of coffee as for an espresso. L’OR Espresso Lungos are specifically designed to produce a large cup (110ml) of a long and intense espresso with a perfect consistency.
Cappuccino – One of the most popular milky coffee drinks. Originated in Italy, the cappuccino has an espresso at its base and is topped with hot milk and a dense layer of micro-foam.
Macchiato – A macchiato is basically an espresso with a dollop of steamed milk and foam on top of it. The milk slightly calms the harshness of the espresso and therefore makes a perfect drink for those who enjoy an espresso, but with a little less kick.
Latte Macchiato – Probably one of the most photogenic drinks. With its typical three layers, the latte macchiato is often served in a long glass so those layers can be shown. It contains mostly steamed milk, marked with espresso and a little foam layer on top.
Flat White – Originated in Australia, the flat white needs a little more explanation, as there appear to be several views on how a flat white should be made. You will find that different countries and cafés have different takes on serving the flat white. One way to serve it, is a shot of espresso with steamed milk, so no foam at all. Another, more common but also more advanced way to serve the flat white, is by swirling a milk- and micro-foam mixture into a shot of espresso, aiming not to let the foam separate from the milk.

Grand Brulot is the brand has been ‘waking up’ the espresso martini before the espresso martini became the drink-of-summer – before, after and all night long choice cocktail…. rand Brulot revives a 200 plus year old French tradition where rich Coffee was blended with Cognac to create an exquisite tasting drink: The Brulôt.
● Single-estate craft distilled, Grand Brulot is hand-crafted by the Tardy family on their estate in the Cognac region of France.
● Cellar master Christoph Tardy – a fifth generation Cognac producer – meticulously selects the finest ‘eaux de vie’ to craft a unique VSOP Cognac, which is blended with premium Ecuadorian 100% Robusta coffee beans, selected for their concentrated richness.
● The blend is then aged in French oak barrels to allow the melding of flavor notes over time.
○ The difference? Every drink of this VSOP cognac includes a shot of espresso. It is aged alongside coffee beans for a decadent 80 proof Cognac — with the same amount of caffeine as a shot of espresso.
