Espresso Coffee

What is Espresso Coffee?

Espresso coffee is a rich blend of roasted Arabica and Robusta beans, or a combination of beans and finely ground coffee, tailored for brewing in traditional espresso machines. "Espresso" refers to a quick method of coffee preparation, yielding a small, concentrated shot with a robust flavor and topped with a thick crema. It's often dark roasted to enhance the brewing and extraction process, resulting in a coffee rich in aroma and flavor. Some roasters prefer a milder roast of 100% Arabica for a smoother espresso with less risk of bitterness. In the UK, espresso coffee has gained popularity for its intense flavor and comparatively lower caffeine content than Americano, making it a favored choice for health-conscious individuals.

Can I Use Espresso Coffee in Different Coffee Equipment?

Discount Coffee offers a selection of espresso coffees suitable for various coffee-making devices. While primarily designed for traditional Italian espresso machines, espresso coffee—including both espresso coffee beans and espresso ground coffee—can also cater to professional equipment lacking bean-grinding features. Omni-ground espresso, such as Mokarabia's 100% Arabica and Lavazza Rossa, is versatile enough for stovetops, French Press, filter coffee machines, and more. For those seeking luxury, Davidoff's Dark Aroma 100% Arabica espresso, available from Discount Coffee online in the UK, provides a strong yet smooth experience without bitterness.

What Else Can Espresso Coffee Be Used For?

Espresso coffee serves as the foundation for numerous popular UK coffee drinks, including cappuccinos, lattes, and americanos. Beyond beverages, its brewed form can enhance culinary dishes, adding depth to sweets and savory recipes alike. Incorporate espresso into chocolate cake recipes for richer flavor or mix it into a rub for steaks with chilli, oregano, sugar, and paprika. No traditional Italian Tiramisu would be complete without espresso coffee.
