What is the best espresso?



The best espresso should be


extraordinarily sweet, have a potent aroma, and flavor similar to freshly ground coffee. The crema should be dark reddish-brown and smooth, yet thick. A perfect espresso should be enjoyable straight with no additives. A pleasant and aromatic aftertaste should linger on the palate for several minutes after consumption.

The key to making espresso is to realize that it always has further potential. Espresso preparation is an art that demands the precision and dedication of science. A perfect espresso is more of a concept than an actuality. The beauty is that espresso is volatile and difficult.
