Hot coffee is
brewed from coffee beans, the most popular varieties being from the Arabica and Robusta coffee plants.
You might drink plain black coffee, a cappuccino, a latte, a mocha, an espresso or one of the many other types.

2 Caffè Americano or simply Americano is a style of coffee prepared by adding hot water to espresso. The strength of an Americano varies with the number of shots of espresso added.
3 A café au lait is traditionally the french way of preparing 'coffee with milk' both at home and in Cafés in Europe.
4 Caffè latte is a latte in a portion of espresso and steamed milk, generally in a 2:1 ratio of milk to espresso, with a little foam on top. It was popularized by large coffee chains such as Starbucks.
5 Caffè Marocchino is made from espresso, steamed milk, and a dusting of cocoa powder, similar to the espressino.
6 A café mocha is a variant of a caffè latte. Like a latte, it is typically one third espresso and two thirds steamed milk, but a portion of chocolate is added, typically in the form of a chocolate syrup.
7 A Cafe Zorro is a double espresso, to which hot water is added to 1:1 ratio.
