Espresso Drinks

 

ESPRESSO       
Coffee brewed with forced water for a thicker and creamier consistency

Defined by the foamy crema on top, espresso differs from regular drip coffee by how it is made. A smaller amount of nearly boiling water is forced through the ground coffee for a concentrated and more intense drink.

In Italian, macchiato means “stained” or “spotted” and describes the drop of foamed milk on top of the espresso. This dot is used to tell it apart from just plain espresso.
