How do I make an espresso?

- Espresso glass 7g
- Freshly Ground Coffee or beans
- Aim for 20 seconds extraction time, to deliver 25-30ml
- Sugar to taste
- An espresso is a strong shot of coffee, with a rich intense flavour.

A standard espresso is made with 7g of freshly ground coffee, extracted to 25-30ml. A serving should take around 20-25 seconds from beginning to end of delivery to balance the coffee flavours.The quality of a good espresso is shown by a 3-5mm hazel-coloured 'crema'. It is best served in a pre-heated espresso cup. Add sugar to taste and for a more mellow flavour.The espresso can also be added to milk and syrups to make various Italian coffee drinks such as a cappuccino, latte or Americano. Everything begins with an Espresso!
