Italians have loved coffee since it first arrived at the port of Trieste in the 16th century. Italians drink coffee first thing in the morning, after lunch, at work and then after dinner. Coffee is an art in Italy, especially and most notably, with espresso. In Italy, the coffee shop, known as the coffee ‘bar’, is extremely popular too! Making perfect espresso is a key skill in the bars.
The word espresso is used to describe both a roast of coffee (Espresso Roast) and a method of brewing. Espresso is brewed by forcing hot water under pressure through a compressed pack of finely ground coffee. Espresso Roast refers to coffee roasted so that it is somewhat darker than traditional American roasts. The espresso roast highlights the bitter-sweetness of the bean while keeping the acidity (the tartness) down.
