Breve coffee is a coffee beverage that is made with espresso and steamed half-and-half instead of milk. The term "breve" comes from the Italian word for "short" and refers to the short espresso shot that is the base of the drink. The half-and-half used in breve coffee gives it a rich and creamy texture and a slightly sweeter taste than regular coffee with milk. Breve coffee is often served in smaller portions than traditional coffee drinks and is popular among those who prefer a richer, creamier coffee experience. It can also be customized with flavored syrups or toppings, such as whipped cream or chocolate shavings.
