East Kilbride News - - NEWS -

There’s noth­ing bet­ter than sink­ing into a comfy sofa, chat­ting to friends and sip­ping a well­made cof­fee – isn’t cof­fee cul­ture bliss?

The 1990s saw a boom in cof­fee shop open­ings as pro­grammes like Friends high­lighted the joy of hang­ing out with your besties drink­ing cof­fee made by a trained barista (Gun­ther we love you!).

Now, over 70 mil­lion cups of cof­fee are con­sumed in the UK every sin­gle day. It seems Britain has asked the cup of tea to step aside.

And EK, East Kil­bride is the per­fect place to in­dulge in ex­cel­lent cof­fee made by baris­tas who take real pride in what they do.

Not only does the cen­tre have three Costa Cof­fees (in The Hub, Cen­tre West, Deben­hams), a Star­bucks and the newly opened Tim Hor­tons, there’s also Café Ro­mana, Zucca Bistro, Muf­fin Break and more.

For those who get a lit­tle bam­boo­zled by cof­fee menus here’s a quick guide ■ Espresso – A short, shot of caf­feine.

■ Mac­chi­ato – A shot of espresso with a dol­lop of steamed milk and foam.

■ Amer­i­cano – Hot water with an espresso shot.

■ Café Latte – Espresso with steamed milk and foam.

■ Cap­puc­cino – Sim­i­lar to a latte but with more foam and choco­late.

■ Flat white – Like a latte but with a lit­tle less milk and more espresso

■Mocha – Mix be­tween a cap­puc­cino and a hot choco­late.
