Hi. My name is Rheedan. Welcome to Oxford Online English! Today, we're going to learn
some important words and phrases, so that you can order your next cup of coffee in English.
Do you often go for coffee? Do you know how to order different types of coffee in English?
You'll learn how in this lesson. Let's first look at some words you'll need to know when
ordering your morning cup.
At a coffee shop, drinks are usually made from espresso. An espresso is a small amount
of very strong coffee. This small amount is called a shot. This espresso is then drunk
on its own or mixed in different ways to make the different coffee drinks. Here are some
of the most common. Americano: espresso with hot water. Cappuccino: espresso and steamed
milk, with foamed milk or cream on top. Latte: espresso with lots of steamed milk. Mocha:
espresso, hot chocolate, and steamed milk, sometimes with cream on top.
Which of these types of coffee have you tried? Personally, I like lattes. You can also have
your coffee with different kinds of milk, like low-fat, fat-free, or soy. If you want
coffee without milk, ask for a black coffee. Some people also like to have things added
to their coffee, like caramel, chocolate, or vanilla syrup, or cream. You can even have
an extra shot of espresso added. You also have a choice of sizes. You can get a small,
medium, large, or extra large. Many coffee shops have their own names for these sizes,
but you don't need to know or use them. Just using these sizes will work.
How to order coffee: when giving your order, you usually say the size first, then the type
of coffee, and then the type of milk or extras. For example, "Small cappuccino with caramel
syrup" or, "Medium mocha without cream." If you want a cold drink, you add the word "iced"
before the type of coffee. For example, "Large iced latte with low-fat milk" or, "Medium
iced Americano."
Placing your order: a barista is someone who makes coffee. They will usually take your
order. There are a few things they can say, such as, "May I take your order?" "What would
you like?" "What can I get you?" "What will you have?" You can answer in a few different
ways. You can say, "I would like . . ." "I'll have . . ." or, "Can I get . . .?" Then you
give your order: "I'll have an Americano with vanilla syrup." Or, "Can I get a latte with
extra cream, please?"
What's this order missing? If you make an order like this, the first question you will
be asked is, "What size would you like?" "What size will that be?" Another question you might
hear when making your order is, "Is that for here or to take away?" You can answer, "For
here," "To take away," or, "To go." You can also add this information to your order. What
does that look like? When you order, you can just say, "I'd like a small mocha without
cream to go," or, "I'll have a medium iced latte with vanilla syrup, for here."
After you order, the barista might say, "Will that be all?" "Is that everything?" "Would
you like anything else?" Finally, the barista will tell you the total cost. "Your total
is . . ." "That comes to . . ." "That will be . . ." When handing over your money, you
can say, "Here you are," or, "Here you go." Once you've paid, you'll both say, "Thank
you," and that's it. You've just successfully ordered coffee in English.
Let's look at a sample dialogue. "Hi. What'll you have?" "I"d like a large latte." "Will
that be all?" "Yes, thank you." "Is that for here? Or to go?" "To go." "Your total comes
to $4." "Here you go." "Thanks very much." "Thank you. Have a nice day."
Let's look at one more. "Hi. What can I get you?" "I'll have a small mocha with cream
and a small cappuccino, for here." "Would you like anything else?" "Yes, I'd also like
an espresso." "Is that everything?" "Yes." "That will be six pounds." "Here you go."
"Here's your change." "Thanks." "Thanks very much." There you go. Now you'll be able to
order your next cup of coffee in English.
