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?
Though coffee was discovered in Ethiopia around A.D. 850, it wasn’t until it spread to Mocha, Yemen, in around 1100 that it became firmly established as a popular drink. From Mocha (from which Mocha coffee derives its name), beans were shipped to India, Java, and eventually Europe in 1515. By 1675, England had more than 3,000 coffee houses.
