The Magic Of Coffee

Classic Italian Espresso Caffè

Italian Espresso Caffè is a small cup of very strong coffee that Italians not only sip from tiny cups, it is also brewed in a special machine that forces boiling water through the dark roasted, finely ground coffee beans. 

The classic espresso recipe is a single shot of espresso, approximately 1-1/2 oz. (40 ml). Espresso is best served in a pre-heated espresso cup.

NOTE: For stronger flavor, use 1-1/2 times the amount of espresso whether you are brewing your own or using instant espresso.

TIP: Espresso Caffè is also used as the basis for other drinks like: caffè late, cappuccino, caffè macchiato, Espresso con Panna and many more.

  • To prepare Espresso con Panna use single or double espresso shot and top with whipped cream.
  • To prepare Caffè Macchiato use a single shot of espresso and top with 1-2 tablespoons of frothed milk.
  • To prepare Espresso Dopio (Double Espresso), just double the quantity of espresso to about 3 oz. for double the pleasure and serve in a pre-heated cappuccino cup.
  • To prepare Macchiato Fiordilatte use a single shot of espresso and top with 1-2 tablespoons of steamed heavy cream. Be careful not to use too much steam, you could alter the structure of the cream.
