If you crave a rich, pure coffee taste in thick liquid form, espresso is probably the coffee drink you want.
An espresso is not just an extremely concentrated shot of coffee, it is also a brewing method and the basis for many other coffee drinks including cappuccinos, macchiatos, lattes, and americanos.
Espresso is usually made in an espresso machine or a stove-top espresso pot. Hot water is forced through coffee grounds at high pressure resulting in a strong coffee drink. It is known for keeping more of the coffee’s essential oils and for its fine crema (foam).
