What is Espresso?
Espresso is a certain type of coffee drink that is pulled from an espresso machine. It is a full-flavored , concentrated form of coffee that is made by forcing pressurized hot water through very finely ground coffee beans.
At Mozart’s, we have two espresso blends that we trade out often. Our signature espresso blend is the Mozart’s D’oro and the other is called WiseGuy Espresso.
Espresso D’oro has been our golden espresso since 1999. This espresso has a caramel, chocolate body and citrus fruit acidity.
WiseGuy Espresso is a light roast Scandinavia style that will give you a clean, bright, and sweet taste.
There are many ways to drink Espresso! It is naturally pulled in shots. Originally, it was served alone as a 1oz. espresso shot. Most prefer a double shot which is also called ‘Doppio’. Either way, espresso is meant to be sipped slowly so you can enjoy it’s full, rich flavor.
If you aren’t quite ready for straight espresso, there are many other popular espresso drinks such as:
- Cappuccino – espresso / frothed milk
- Latte – espresso / milk
- Americano – espresso / water
Many of the above drinks can come hot, iced, with syrup, with whipped-cream, and more.
If you haven’t tried espresso before, give it a shot (pun intended)! It may be that extra boost of energy you are looking for.
