What Is Espresso?

Espresso can be traced back to Italy in the late 1800s. The word “espresso” means “to express” or “to press out,” referring to the historical way to make espresso coffee. Traditionally, espresso is characterized by the way a cup is made, forcing hot water through finely ground and closely packed coffee grounds. This process brings out the strong flavor that many of us know as espresso. More recently, espresso has made a slight shift. Espresso is now commonly characterized as a very dark roast of coffee with a strong, rich flavor and a high caffeine content made any way (not just with a fancy machine). Don’t be afraid to espresso yourself and brew your way!
