What is an Espresso?

2011_06_17_0209

An Espresso is a coffee made with an Espresso machine that extracts coffee at a high temperature and high pressure state.  The traditional standard is to extract 30 ml of coffee within 30 seconds.  The following attributes will alter these standards.
  • Coffee weight
  • Coffee grind size
  • Tamping pressure
  • Ambient humidity
  • Ambient temperature
  • Coffee machine temperature and pressure
Any variance on these attributes and your cup of coffee will have a different taste. It is our barista’s job to control these attributes and make the perfect coffee for our customers every time.
