Caffeine Trivia 07.17.14

Espresso, which originated in Milan, Italy circa 1900, is a very dark, bitter Italian coffee often miscalled expresso.  The term espresso comes from the Italian meaning “pressed out,” referring to the process of pushing the freshly fine-ground bean essence through a special machine using steam and water. This process creates a highly concentrated brew with a thin layer of creamy, dark beige froth on the coffee’s surface.
