Hey everyone. I am 18 and I run my high school coffee shop. I have to make a list of how to make drinks. But I really dont know what to say or how to put it. They are either 16 or 12 ounce drinks and I have no idea how much one shot is and what not. Can you help me out please? The only drink I know how to make is a shot a flavor 2 shots of expresso and fill the rest with milk... Help please :oops:

This is a general standard to go by, but you may want to change, based on your taste:

12 oz - 1 short shot (called "Ristretto" ) (.75 oz. to 1 oz.)

16 oz - 2 short shots (use double portafilter) ( 1.5 oz. to 2 oz. )

20 oz - 3 short shots or 2 long shots ( called "Lungo" ) (1 long shot is about 1 oz. to 1.5 oz. a double long shot is about 2 to 3 oz.'s)

12 oz drinks use about 1 oz. of syrup or sauce or a combination of both.

16 oz drinks use about 1.5 oz. of syrup or sauce or a combination of both.

20 oz drinks use about 2.0 oz. of syrup or sauce or a combination of both.

When building your espresso drinks:

1st add syrups or sauce to cup
2nd add espresso
3rd add steamed milk (140 - 160 degrees)
4th add whip cream and topping if desired

If you are using pumps on your syrups or sauces, here is the measurements:

Syrup Pump is .25 oz's
Sauce Pump is .50 oz's

I hope this help give you some guidelines to go by!!
