Italian Espresso and More Reasons To Love Coffee

If French is the language of love, then Italian is the language of coffee! The reason? Espresso, born in Italy, is the basis of all Italian-named coffee drinks. From cappuccino to macchiato to latte, they all start with espresso! Let’s take a look at this key component of Italian coffee.
DK-Espresso-Banner
Espresso is a very concentrated shot of coffee that results from forcing nearly-boiling water through finely ground coffee. Early espresso machines used steam pressure to force the water through the grounds. Today there are many different methods of extracting espresso, from manual and automatic machines to stovetop espresso makers.

esp-dripAs the water blasts through the coffee, all the flavor, oils, sugars and proteins are released and dissolved in the liquid. The resulting mixture, while small in volume, is slightly thick, with a very strong, rich flavor. Gently resting on top is the crema (foam), which many experts say indicates the quality of the espresso. Traditionally, espresso is served in a small, porcelain cup, alone or with any number of add-ins and toppings: cream, liquor, warm milk, chocolate – the list is long, just pick your favorite. The extracted shot can also be used in many other coffee drinks, as mentioned above.

We have a huge selection of espresso beans, ground espresso and even decaffeinated espresso. And, we have these Italian coffees in roasts that can prepared in a regular coffee maker. The options are endless! Even better, our prices make it easy to espresso yourself!

Italian Espresso

esp-socialize-wpEspresso became popular in the first half of the 20th century in Italy with the development of machines specially built to make coffee. Espresso bars became a place to meet and socialize.


Kimbo

Try Kimbo Macinato Fresco, a medium roast, full flavored, with sweet notes.

Lavazza

LV-Wimbeldon-bLegendary Italian brand, Lavazza, is “The coffee of Wimbledon.” Lavazza early on started artistically blending beans of different origins to create new coffee flavors.

Recipe: Espresso Martini

If you have never had an espresso martini, you don’t know what you are missing! Here is the classic recipe created when a model came into a London brasserie and asked for a stiff drink that would wake her up.

coffee-martini-2019• 2 parts vodka
• 1 part Kahlua (coffee liqueur)
• 1 part fresh espresso
• ½ part simple syrup (or to taste)
• 3 coffee beans to garnish

1. Mix all the ingredients except the beans in a shaker full of ice and shake hard for 30 seconds.

2. Strain into a martini glass. Garnish with the beans centered on the froth.

Italian Military Exercises Serve Up Strategy and Espresso

ITL-Soldiers-EspressoThe Italian Army’s paratrooper brigade has been taking part in “Swift Response” exercises in eastern Europe this summer, being dropped into the field, then searching for and capturing “the enemy.” One of the most important pieces of equipment they carry is the portable espresso machine, because, well, they love espresso. In their foxholes, the Italians brew espresso, and the other combatants have noticed. An American adviser taking part in the exercises noted that the Italian paratroopers are battle-ready, even when gripping a tiny cup of coffee. In a recent night battle, the paratroopers successfully held their position through a mock challenge. You can be sure they celebrated the win with an espresso.

Refreshing Coffee Drinks For Summer

The time is now, in this summer heat, to switch to iced coffee. Whether you are looking for a quick fix or a more involved preparation, we’ve got you covered.

Let’s start with everyone’s summer drink, lemonade, and turn it into a caffeinated Arnold Palmer. Try this cold brew lemonade. You’ll need:

lemonade-coffee1-2 oz lemon juice
1 oz simple syrup (see note below)
4-5 oz water
4-5 oz cold brew coffee (you can use regular brew instead)
Ice

1. Make the lemonade by combining the juice, the syrup and water in a glass. You want to make a slightly tart lemonade, not very sweet. When it tastes the way you want…

2. Add ice to the glass, then top up with the coffee. Stir and enjoy!

NOTE: Make simple syrup by combining equal amounts of water and sugar. Bring to a boil, then allow to cool. Store in the refrigerator for best results. Simple syrup is perfect for iced drinks – no trying to dissolve sugar in a cold liquid.

Affogato-2019-EAnother favorite coffee drink this summer should be an Affogato. The word means “drowned” because the espresso is poured over a scoop of vanilla ice cream or gelato. The espresso should be hot, and be sure to use a spoon to get every drop. Is it a dessert? Is a drink? You decide. Either way, you won’t be disappointed.

Finally, let’s try a Coconut Caramel Coffee. You’ll need:
coconut-caramel-coffee
8 oz coffee
Ice
1-2 Tablespoons coconut milk
1-2 teaspoons caramel syrup

1. Start with the coffee in a mug or glass. Stir in the milk and the syrup. Add a pinch of sweetener if desired. Serve and enjoy!

Europe’s Oldest Person, Ran a Coffee Bar, Passes Away at 116

We have written before about some of the oldest people in the world who happen to live in Italy. This month, great-grandmother Giuseppina Robucci died in the southern town of Poggio Imperiale. She is officially the last European born in 1903. (A woman in Japan, 2 months older than Robucci, is the current oldest living person in the world.) Robucci had five children, nine grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. She and her husband ran a coffee bar for much of their lives, and she was even named an honorary mayor back when she was a young 109 year old.
