Espresso coffee

Espresso is usually made in a special espresso machine

If you have a craving for a rich, pure coffee taste in thick liquid form, espresso is probably the coffee drink you want.

An espresso is not just an extremely concentrated shot of coffee, it is also a brewing method and the base for many other coffee drinks including cappuccinos, macchiatos, lattes, and americanos.

Espresso is usually made in an espresso machine or a stove top espresso pot. Hot water is forced through coffee grounds at high pressure resulting in a strong coffee drink that nonetheless has about half the caffeine of a drip brewed coffee. It is also known for keeping more of coffee’s essential oils and for its fine crema (foam).

The espresso coffee machine was developed in Italy

The history of espresso starts in 1885 when Italian Angelo Moriondo invented a bulk brewer that pushed pressurised steam and water through coffee. In 1901, Italian Luigi Bezzera improved upon the machine and in 1905, the La Pavoni company began to produce the machines which could now be used for single servings.


Because the machine is so bulky, and did not become available for home use until the 1970s, espresso is mainly associated with coffee houses. However, as machines have become smaller, more espresso enthusiasts are pulling shots at home.

NESCAFÉ Espresso - intense flavour without the fuss

You don’t need a big bulky machine to make an espresso. There is an easier, faster way – one that gives you the intense flavor you love without any hassle. It is NESCAFÉ Espresso - made from 100% Arabica beans.


We wash and fully roast these finest quality beans to achieve the rich, intense taste needed for this classic type of coffee. A short but deeply satisfying cup with a velvety golden-brown crema layer – enjoy!
