For some people who have a heavier taste or prefer espresso flavor, increasing the number of espresso in a cup of coffee drink has become a very important method.


Usually there is only one shot of espresso in a coffee drink. But it can be requested through the double-shot or triple-shot method. Requesting a few more copies will charge you the corresponding price. So when you have an espresso requesting more shots, the cashier will write the corresponding Arabic numbers in the box as a sign to the barista.
