PostSubject: How Is Espresso Made?   Sun Feb 27, 2011 3:50 am

What did you know about interesting Espresss coffee? Where was it all from? And How Is Espresso Made? This article will help you find out espresso origin and also helpful knowledge delicous beverage. Espresso (or) Coffee Espresso is a popular coffee beverage enjoyed by millions of people and is hugely popular in Europe as well as in North America, Australia and New Zealand. Most of us are very much aware of an Espresso but very few of us know what it exactly is or how it is prepared?

So where did it all start?
A guy named Luigi Bezzera from Italy invented the Espresso drink in 1903. He was basically frustrated with the time it took to make a decent cup of coffee and wanted to find a way to brew it much quicker. He attempted to increase the applied pressure during the coffee brewing process and thereby reduced the overall preparation time. As expected the coffee drink was prepared much quicker and it in fact tasted even better. This drink soon came to be called the now hugely popular "Espresso". There are over 15 variations of Espresso produced such as Americano, Black eye, Capuccino, Cubano, Doppio, Caffè Latte, Caffè Macchiato, Mocha, Red Eye, Long Black, Lungo, Ristretto, Flat White, Corretto etc.Each of these variations are produced by altering the proportion and temperature of Milk and Water added and by adding various ingredients such as Chocolate, Gelato, Cinnamon, Caramel and even Brandy. When the brewing process begins pressurized water at about 85°C - 95°C is forced into the ground coffee kept in the filter. If the water if forced at a temperature lower than the recommended range, the Espresso produced will turn sour and if it is forced at a higher temperature it will turn bitter. So one should be careful that the water is forced at the ideal temperature range.

How Is Espresso Made?
To make a delicious cup of creamy Espresso you basically need three things
1. A Good Espresso Machine
2. High Quality Coffee beans
3. Some Water

When the brewing process begins pressurized water at about 85°C - 95°C is forced into the ground coffee kept in the filter. If the water if forced at a temperature lower than the recommended range, the Espresso produced will turn sour and if it is forced at a higher temperature it will turn bitter. So one should be careful that the water is forced at the ideal temperature range. A High quality Espresso machine will control the temperature of the forced water effectively and maintain it at the ideal temperature. The entire brewing process will finally produce a rich, creamy, reddish brown like syrup which is your"Espresso". Freshly brewed Espresso should be served immediately or else it will degrade due to cooling and oxidation. To enjoy a delicious cup of creamy Espresso it is recommended to consume it within 2 to 3 minutes from the time of serving. Another popular misconception is that only a specific bean or roast can be used to produce authentic Espresso coffee. This is absolutely not true as any bean or roast can be used.
