How much coffee you need depends on whether you're making one shot or two.
If you’re drinking a pure espresso, you’ll probably just need a single shot. If you're going for a cappuccino or a latte, they're made with either a single or a double shot, topped with steamed milk and milk foam. The flat white is traditionally made with a double shot.
