Caffè Espresso

Tradition

Coffee traditions vary; the blend of beans used for drip coffee and the roasting of them differ from espresso blends and roasts.

Drip coffee, once the roast is done right, requires little precision and attention to detail when brewed. It is hard to make a mistake and there is only minimally noticeable variation in taste caused by the preparation.

Espresso preparation on the other hand, independently from the quality of the beans, needs proper equipment and attention. There are only good and bad espressi; nothing in-between. Lack of attention to detail in the process of preparation will result in a bad espresso. Good equipment and attention to detail are the keys to good espresso. The different traditions created experiences that are not easily acquired or transferred – it is still a challenge to find good espresso outside of Italy.

Taste

Espresso tastes good if it is diligently prepared. It’s not an acquired taste, you will simply know if it is right or not. Let your taste guide you – do not accept sour or bitter tasting espresso.

Making your own espresso will expose you to new culinary sensations: the process of adjusting the grinder to the batch of beans sets free palettes of intense charming aromas, the brewing of the coffee aesthetically pleases the eye with an unparalleled spectrum of perfect copper-tones that bleed into the cup as marbeled crema on top of the black essence distilled from the grounds. And all these riches culminate in the drinking experience of refined caramel and nut flavors that let you revisit the fertile earths of sunny farmed highlands and the ancient Italian città with its patinaed facades echoing flirtatious chatter of its people.
