The short double espresso is part of all espresso-based beverages. It is made of water and coffee with a strong taste and is very easy to make.
Espresso is a coffee extraction. This means that very hot pressurized water passes through the coffee to extract the oils. This makes a very concentrated and dense drink, with a lower caffeine content. In addition, espresso is divided into two parts: the liquid and the crema. It is the base of the majority of the beverages on the menus in coffee shops.
Finely grind 14 to 18 g of coffee, and place in a double portafilter.
Press the coffee into the portafilter.
Once the portafilter is inserted into the brew group, start extracting. Stop once there is around 2 oz. of liquid.
Enjoy. Some people add milk, cream, or sugar to their espresso.
