Espresso is a type of coffee which often drunk in Italy and Spain, where it is simply called coffee. It has now spread to many parts of the world. Espresso originated in Italy, which appeared to be brewing this way around 1930.
Espresso have to literally “pressed”. This method of brewing using hot and steamed water through roasted and ground coffee with high pressure (ideally 9-10 atmosphere) makes coffee 15 times more dense than coffee compared to other countries. A cup of espresso is black and concentrated juice with a very high concentration. Therefore, the level is limit to less than 20 ml. A delicious espresso cup needs a layer of reddish brown foam floating on the face called crema (cream).

Espresso is a drink make by compressing a small amount of water at a near evaporation temperature and letting it run through smooth coffee. Under the pressure of water, the phenomenon of absorbing hot water through a soft compacted coffee. Therefore, it will separate all the ingredients of the coffee. Water carries solutes, oils, and even insoluble substances into the cup.
Layers of best espresso coffee
There are two basic layers of espresso separation: the crema layer and the liquid layer.
Crema is make of CO2 and its foam surrounded by water and oil. Crema also includes coffee and emulsifying oils found in coffee beans. This layer can be very bitter and there is a lively debate. Should be stir before drinking to mix the layers together or not?
The main component of separating espresso is the liquid formed by solutes, gases, and insoluble substances. This is the part that makes up the taste of the espresso we love.

To make a delicious and crema-rich espresso, use an espresso machine. In this machine hot water 88 ° C to 94 ° C have pressed with an initial pressure of about 9 bars through a finely ground coffee powder. The flow time must be 25 seconds. If the right amount of water flows faster than the flavors which have dissolved, it is possible to understand that water flowing through coffee powder slowly will have too much soluble bitter substance.
