Espresso is a preparation method for brewing coffee and has its origins in Italy. The process consists in forcing hot water (aprox. at 90 ) through ground compacted coffee to obtain a very concentrated brew. As result, the caffeine ratio is way higher than most coffee drinks.
Espresso is commonly served in a 25-30ml cup which contains approximately 65-70mg of caffeine per serving. However, a 240ml Espresso might contain 20-25% more caffeine than a regular coffee beverage served in the same volume mug. What makes Espresso so special is the strong perception of the coffee body through the mouth. Thanks to the small oil drops obtained during the three dispersed phases of the brewing process, the drink conserves most of its aromatic compounds that can be missed in other typical coffee receipts.
The belief that espresso is associated to a way that the beans are roasted or blended is a misconception. Any bean can be processed and prepared to deliver an Espresso. However, a particular roast level might be chosen to obtain a preferred result.
