Italian Coffee Machine
The mixture of rich taste and sweetness in a cup makes a special taste that makes espresso-based drinks are very famous among caffeine lovers.
Sweet Flavor Caffee
Despite the sweet flavour, they contain a higher level – up to 3 times – matched with ordinary coffee.
Due to that season, espresso drink is generally served in a little cup named demitasse.
To produce the best espresso, we will need the best Italian coffee maker, which has a higher force than the average machine, which generally has less than 15 BAR pressure.
This high pressure is very vital because it will extract taste and flavour from coffee grounds fully.
Still, the best machine is not enough without a barista.
Barista is an Italian term for bartender, favour to a person who has the best expertise to operate the machine and serve espresso rightly.
Anyway, today, you can find a mechanical espresso machine that can be operated simpler and not necessarily needed a barista as its operator.
Basically, the espresso machine is classified into 3 types based on its technique to produce the beverages.
Steam-Driven Machine Italian Espresso Coffee
The first type is a steam-driven machine.
It uses steam force to pressure water via coffee ground. This kind of machine generally has a lower cost than the other.
The second type is the piston drive machine. It presses warm water manually. When using this machine, the barista needs to pump water by using a lever.
