Nothing like a breve to start your day!!!
Espresso is simply the ability to extract the maximum flavor from coffee and leave behind excess acids and caffeine. DID SHE SAY LEAVE BEHIND THE CAFFEINE?? Yes, in truth, there is less caffeine in a cup of espresso than your ordinary cup of drip coffee. Hard to believe but true!
To make great tasting espresso it takes more than just a machine and beans. The theory Randy and I based our business on is to start out with the best possible espresso beans. Taste is everything. We purchase our espresso beans from Espresso Vivace in Seattle, Washington. We like some bite to our bean, so our choice is Dolce blend
Beans alone do not the great espresso cup make. In order to pull the best shots from your machine it takes training in tamping, getting the grind perfect, and practice, practice, practice. Even for the novice that wants to brew a great cup of espresso, we suggest purchasing some books on the subject or better yet a video. The best video I've ever seen is "The Art of Coffee" put out by Bellissimo. They sell it on their web site for $24.95. May seem a little over board, but short of having a professional that really knows what they are doing train you, this video is the best. Not to mention it will teach you a lot about coffee/espresso.
