Every cup of coffee has a tale to tell. An intriguing tale that begins with the growing and picking of coffee beans in very diverse countries and parts of the world. From these countries the coffee then travels in order to continue the saga of how it is blended, roasted, and ground. These procedures are the fruits of craft traditions that are handed on from generation to generation and that have contributed to the creation of a veritable cult of coffee.
Espresso is coffee that is made “expressly for you”, quickly and individually. This method of coffee preparation was created in order to find a remedy for the slowness of other methods and the consequent loss of the infusion’s aroma when already hot and before being drunk, speeding up the passage of the water through the dose of round coffee by means of greater pressure.
It is an extraordinary drink, a marvel of chemical and physical engineering, aromatic, of a full and velvety flavour: aromatic because the emulsion given by the pressure of the oils present in the coffee frees the aroma which dissolves in the hot water, trys to escape, but is immediately trapped by the cream. Velvety because the sugar, protein and fats emulsified together.
