Espresso

The iconic method of making coffee – a great espresso made from a great machine just oozes cool.  Each drink is produced by forcing a small amount of nearly boiling water under pressure through finely ground coffee beans. With a higher concentration of coffee solids, and the foam pale head which is called the crema, espresso is generally thicker than coffee beverages from other brew methods.  Because the drink is very concentrated it forms the basis of all other espresso-based drinks such as: latte, flat white, Americano etc.  Generally speaking, roasted coffees with a strong body are a good choice for espresso drinks as it has enough punch to complement the milk.

Choose from the range of coffees below that we recommend for this brew method.

Brewing Tips:

  • Grind from whole beans if possible – it brings out the best in the flavours

  • The correct weight and grind will determine the perfect extraction (aim for around 25 secs)

  • Keep your machine clean and depending on usage flush with cleaning solution each day (or equivalent of 70 cups for home use)
