What's The Difference Between A Latte, Coffee, Espresso & Cappuccino?

Q: What's the difference between a Latte, coffee, Espresso & Cappuccino?

A: LATTE - Strong Espresso coffee with a topping of frothed, steamed milk. COFFEE - The "beans" or "berries" (pyrenes) obtained from the drupes of a small evergreen tree of the genus Coffea, growing in Abyssinia, Arabia, Persia, and other warm regions of Asia and Africa, and also in tropical America. ESPRESSO - A strong coffee brewed by forcing steam under pressure through darkly roasted, powdered coffee beans. CAPPUCCINO - Coffee with frothy hot milk and usually dusted with chocolate powder on top. A BIG difference in my opinion. A Latte is just coffee mixed with steamed milk only. Coffee is just....well coffee. Espresso is a super concentrated shot of coffee, and a Cappuccino is Espresso mixed with steamed, and foamed milk. If you realllllyyy wanna know more, look on wikipedia or something. Yeaah coffee ^_^ Latte: 2 shots of Espresso with steamed milk and less than half an inch of foam on top. Cappuccino: 2 shots of Espresso with a half a cup of foam and the rest steamed milk. Coffee: No milk, just basic brewed coffee. Normally 1 cup coffee beans to 1 pot of coffee. Espresso: Concentrated coffee. The roast is what makes it Espresso. Pulls in 1 oz shots. This may not be all that helpful...but...there was an episode of Alton Brown on the Foodnetwork Channel about coffee beans (can't find the exact episode). It talked about how they differed in amount per part of beans, coffee, cream, half & half, and other ingredient combinations.
