A Refined Process
Espresso is made by boiling a small amount of pressurized water, and passing it through properly-ground coffee beans. It has a thicker texture than regular coffee because it contains a higher suspended and dissolved solid concentration (due to the pressurization of the boiling water). If that wasn’t enough technical bliss, espresso is typically topped off with “crema,” which is a creamy foam. Want to experience this delicious treat?

Did You Know?
There are two main species of the coffee plant used to commercially produce coffee: 1) Coffee arabica, which originated in the Middle East, and 2) Coffea robusta, which originated in the Congo. Arabica trees produce the best quality coffee and are the most widely cultivated (3/4 of the world’s coffee), while Robusta beans are hardier, contain 40-50% more caffeine, and are used in many instant coffees.
