Espresso is not a particular type of coffee bean or a particular roast, it is a drink. The espresso originated in Italy over 100 years ago. According to some information the drink dates back to 800 A.D. The Italian word espresso translates into English as: “to express”. Espresso is the name given to both the drink and the brewing process. The 'crema' is indicative of the freshness of the coffee beans.
Brewed espresso has 2.5% fat, while filtered coffee contains 0.6% fat. Espresso is a color that stands between black and brown. It's really a dark brown that is usually mistaken to be a true black. Espresso machines use 132 pounds per square inch of pressure to extract coffee.
