Coffee Organic Coffee in Your Neighborhood

Much of the organic coffee consumed in the USA comes from coffee houses. Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, Dunn Brothers, Peets, and your local coffee house commonly carry organic coffees. If you always get your coffee on the go just ask for organic when you get coffee from your favorite coffee house. You can always ask for your favorite coffee house coffee treatment and still be organic.

All coffee house coffee starts with espresso and here are the variations:

  • Americano
  • Breve
  • Cappucino
  • Latte
  • Mocha


Americano is a coffee house coffee made from espresso and diluted with water. This goes back to the World War II era and after when GI’s who were used to Mom’s home perked or boiled coffee asked the barista to add water to their espresso to make it less strong. Think “weak espresso.”

Breve and Latte

Both of these are made with espresso and foam. Latte is made with steamed milk and breve is made with half and half. For latte think “coffee with milk” or café au lait and for breve think “coffee with milk and cream.”


Cappuccino is made with espresso plus hot milk plus lots of steamed foam.


Mocha is for coffee and chocolate lovers. It is made with espresso plus chocolate syrup plus milk.
