If you have never tried espresso in your life, the time has come to do just that. I had some good experience with this type of coffee.
And I can say that it is probably my favorite. Usually when I want a really good one, I go to the nearest coffee shop.
How I Used To Get Satiated
I would say that this is the best coffee shop in my neighborhood. My neighbors agree, so in the mornings there are a lot of people there. In my coffee shop they make espresso with the best espresso machines. However I don’t have one of those at home. So sometimes when it’s raining outside, or I’m just not in the mood, I try to make an espresso at home. It doesn’t usually turn out to be as good as the one they make in the coffee shop. However sometimes I actually manage to create something drinkable. Actually I hope that someday I will save up enough money to open my own coffee shop. Or at least buy a moka pot to make life easier.
The Coffee Machine I Used To Own
Right now I have a regular coffee machine, which does the job more or less OK. But the most important thing about the espresso is of course the coffee it is made from. The worst idea you can come up with is buy coffee which is already ground. If the coffee is ground somewhere else, it means it lost half of it’s taste, because of being kept this way for some time. You never really know how much time it spent on the store shelf. So go and buy some coffee beans from the specialty store. This is the best place to buy them. Regular supermarket doesn’t do the job, IMHO. Once the coffee is chosen, make sure your coffee machine is clean and do the grinding and let the machine to the rest of the job.
