What's the difference between mocha, latte, frappe, espresso, cappuccino coffees?

Q: I am a newbie to coffee drinking. I don't like coffees that are really strong. When I get coffee, I always add cream, sugar and flavorings, if they are available. What do you reccomend?

A: Espresso-brewed by compression with steam(pretty strong) Latte- steamed milk and espresso Cappuccino-foamed milk and espresso(if made correctly it will weigh next to nothing) Mocha- a latte with chocolate sauce(sometimes choc. milk is used instead Frappe-a drink blended with ice...these come in many varieties but are most commonly found with vanilla or chocolate) I would recomend a mocha, if you like chocolate or a vanilla(or other flavored) latte.I don't know, I would just like to be able to by coffee-flavored coffe again. It seems a lot of cafes will sell cappuccino, frappaccino, mochaccino, chococcino, alpacino, everything coffee related under the sun except REGULAR COFFEE!The difference between a cappuccino and latte are simple: both have espresso and milk, but the milk content is what makes the difference. The latte has more, and has a creamier taste. The cappuccino has less milk, and a stiff head of foam, whereas the latte has a short head of foam. All a mocha brings is the addition of chocolate (usually syrup). A macchiato is espresso with a little steamed milk on the top. Espresso is a drink that is brewed by forcing hot water into very finely ground coffee. The name came from the method of brewing ('express') and because of the coffee grounds under pressure. A frappe is made from ice cream, milk and flavored syrup, usually. It may also contain coffee or coffee flavoring.
