What Defines an Espresso
The espresso has become almost interchangeable with a cup of coffee in many parts of the world, and for good reason. The humble espresso is a product of the Italian coffee tradition, it is in many ways the most balanced yet concentrated form of coffee available. A shot of espresso is how many people start their day and there are a couple of characteristics that make the espresso what it is.
In the early 1900’s in and around Milano, Italy, Baristas were finding innovative new ways to make coffee and they found that forcing pressurized hot water through a small concentration of coffee, created an ideal balance of coffee’s major properties, bitterness, acidity and sweetness. The very first espresso coffee machines were made in Milan around this time.
These original innovators kept evolving their espresso coffee machines to chase the very pinnacle of the perfect espresso. The light brown foamy ‘crema’, the golden brown to dark brown body of coffee, the gentle inviting aroma and the all-round balanced taste was why espresso is treasured among coffee lovers everywhere.
Some people consider the domestic espresso machines built by Italian company ECM in the 1980's as legendary. When we at Rocket Espresso purchased the rights to build those very machines, we certainly thought so. We then set about turning the legendary machines into the finest handmade espresso machines.
