Caffeine Trivia 9.19.13

The prototype of the first espresso machine was created in France in 1822 by a French man named Louis Bernard Rabaut.  His espresso machine used steam to force hot water through ground coffee, creating the first espresso coffee machine.

The first Italian coffee machine dates back to 1901 when an engineer, Luigi Bezzera registered his patent in Milan. This machine had a column shaped body made from copper and brass and had a very imposing presence.
Bezzera’s design became the standard for decades and is still being made by companies today for business looking for a more traditional style machine.

Personal note: Merci France for such a great invention!
