I have visited Starbucks lots of times for their delicious coffee. As I stand in line, I hear people order coffee with like extra shots. I tried searching up what it means but to no avail. Here's an example of what I hear people say:
I would like some coffee with two extra shots please!
What does the word "shot" mean in the coffee language? Yes, I have looked in the dictionary but no help was given.
They are referring to a "shot" of espresso. The Italian standards are that it is a volume of 25 mL plus or minus ten percent. Additional shots in a drink indicate more espresso flavor and a higher caffeine content.
