Espresso, or caffe espresso, is a concentrated coffee beverage brewed by forcing very hot, but not boiling, water under high pressure though coffee that has been ground to a consistency that is between extremely fine and powder. Espresso was developed in Milan, Italy, in the early 20 th century, but up until the mid 1940's it was a beverage produced solely with steam pressure. The invention of the spring piston lever machine and its subsequent commercial success changed espresso into the beverage we know today. Espresso is not produced with between 9 and 10 atmospheres or bars of pressure. (Source: Wikipedia)
Many people love espresso for its intense flavor, its rich and dark reddish-brown foam known as crema, and its potent caffeine content that will often provide a boost in alertness and mood. Espresso is also known as the base of many other enjoyable drinks, such as cappuccinos, lattes, macchiatis and mochas. They're served in popular establishments such as Starbucks, Peet's, and many other coffee shops which offer coffee-derived brewed beverages and snacks. The drinks are prepared and served by a "barista", which is the Italian word for "bartender."
According to many coffee experts such as those at coffeeresearch.org, "espresso brewing is defined by four 'M's': the Macinazione is the correct grinding of a coffee blend, Miscela is the coffee blend, Macchina is the espresso machine, and Mano is the skill of the barista. When each factor of the four M's is precisely controlled, the espresso beverage that is produces is the ultimate coffee experience." Thankfully, home espresso machines today are requiring less skill because not everyone is a trained barista, but many people thoroughly enjoy the convenience of having one at home.
Home espresso machines now bring the ability to brew these exciting and delicious beverages in the comfort of one's own home. Not only do espresso machine owners save money by not having to buy their favorite drinks at a store every time they want one, but they don't have to waste time travelling to the nearest coffee shop, which could be many miles away- and then they'd have to stand in line and order from a complicated menu. They can experiment with certain flavors, especially when it comes to customizing a special drink just the way they'd like it. It's so disappointing when a barista accidentally messes up an order, but with an espresso machine in the home anyone can add or subtract elements from their coffee beverage in order to make it exactly the way that they like it.
