Espresso is a strong, black coffee, which is made with very hot water, which passes through dark, ground coffee beans with great pressure. Espresso must be slightly thick with a golden-brown cream at the top. It can be consumed black or with a teaspoonful of sugar. If it is really good, the sugar will remain on the cream for a few seconds, before sinking in the coffee. Espresso is called “short”, when it has less water and a stronger taste and “long”, when it has more water and it is not so strong. Espresso macchiato is made if we add a spoonful of cream, while if we add a little whipped cream at the top, we get espresso con panna.
