Coffee. If you have the means (machines etc) and access to the good coffee, there are quite a few styles of coffee to be made.
Here are a few.
The Ristretto
 Image result for Ristretto Cafe
This is an espresso served in a 6-cl cup, but which has a volume of 2.5 cl at the most. The Ristretto is strong, as it is made with the same quantity of ground coffee, but only half the water.

The Macchiato
Macchiato, which means “spotted” in Italian, is an espresso with just a dash of frothed milk. It has a far stronger and more flavoursome taste than Cappuccino.
Make a cup of espresso, then froth the milk (see p.11) and add a teaspoonful of milk to the coffee.

The Corretto
Make a cup of espresso and lace it with a table spoonful of alcohol or liqueur. In Northern Italy,grappa is used.

The Romano 
This is an espresso served with a zest of lemon. The “cafezinho”,
the Brazilian equivalent of the espresso, is also often
accompanied with lemon.

The Cappuccino
The famous drink associating espresso coffee with frothy milk.
Serves 2
• 2 cups hot, strong espresso coffee
• 15-25 cl cold whole milk
• Cocoa powder
Brew 2 cups of espresso in two cappuccino cups (10-15 cl.).
Froth the milk using the pipe (see p.11), then gently pour
2 table spoonfuls of frothy milk on top of the coffee.
Dust with cocoa powder.
