It's easy to forget what goes into your morning coffee or how it's made.
Espresso comes to mind when someone talks coffee. Originating in Italy in the late 1800s to early 1900s, it's used in lattes and mochas.
It's multipurpose. It may be drank as shots or used to make cappuccinos and Americanos.
Espresso is produced with high pressure, hot water, and finely ground coffee beans.
Espresso contains a coating of "crema" on top from air bubbles interacting with the coffee's oils.
But espresso doesn't mean what kind of coffee beans are used. You can make coffee with any kind.
