This page provides all possible meanings and translations of the word Espresso
strong black coffee brewed by forcing hot water under pressure through finely ground coffee beans
A concentrated coffee beverage brewed by forcing hot water under high pressure through finely ground coffee.
A drink that includes espresso as an ingredient.
Espresso is a concentrated beverage brewed by forcing a small amount of nearly boiling water under pressure through finely ground coffee beans. Espresso often has a thicker consistency than coffee brewed by other methods, a higher concentration of suspended and dissolved solids, and crema. As a result of the pressurized brewing process the flavors and chemicals in a typical cup of espresso are very concentrated. Espresso is the base for other drinks, such as a latte, cappuccino, macchiato, mocha, or americano. Espresso has more caffeine per unit volume than most beverages, but the usual serving size is smaller—a typical 60 mL of espresso has 80 to 150 mg of caffeine, a little less than the 95 to 200 mg of a standard 240 mL cup of drip-brewed coffee.
