Lesson Details

It’s not a bean. It’s not a brand. It’s not a make. So, what is it? Espresso, pronounced ess-presso, is one of the two main types of coffee brewing methods.

Originating in Italy in the early 20th century, espresso coffee, compared to filter coffee, uses a smaller quantity of coffee beans, less water and is super quick to brew. Sounds too good to be true, right?

In this lesson, learn about the history of espresso, its rise to fame and how it’s so much more than a bitter beverage to be ignored.

This course is perfect for budding baristas or someone wanting to improve their skills and knowledge behind an espresso machine.
