ESPRESSO! Good Morning Flickr!

Newer Older

Caffè espresso, expresso or just espresso.....Good morning Flickr! What better way to start off the day than with a good cup of hot espresso? Well, I was experimenting with light again and since it's raining out ......why not! Hope you like the pic and enjoy your cup of coffee my friends!!!

Espresso is a concentrated coffee beverage brewed by forcing hot water under pressure through finely ground coffee. Compared to other coffee brewing methods, espresso often has a thicker consistency, a higher concentration of dissolved solids, and foam. As a result of the pressurized brewing process, all of the flavors and chemicals in a typical cup of coffee are very concentrated. For this reason, espresso is the base for other drinks, such as lattes, cappuccino, macchiato, mochas, and americanos.

The first machines were introduced in Italy at the beginning of the 20th Century, with the first patent being filed by Luigi Bezzera of Milan, Italy, in 1901, who invented a steam pressure system. In 1938, Cresemonesi introduced a piston based espresso machine, which eliminated the burnt taste associated with the steam pressure units.
