IL CAFFÈ ESPRESSO

Next time you will be dying for an Espresso you have two choices. You can grab one at Starbucks and pretend that you are drinking an espresso or you can start to find out how to make an Authentic one at home. 

THE RITUAL

Every morning in Italy, starts with caffè: Espresso, Cappuccino, Macchiato. You can either drink coffee at the Italian bar or at home, what really matter is to enjoy your coffee ritual and take your time. 

...AT HOME

Espresso beats the time in the Italians' life. When the intense caffè smell comes from the kitchen, you know it is time to wake up. Believe me, once you will smell it,  you will never forget it.

For the most of us, coffee smell means home, family, childhood and for many people (for me as well)  brew an espresso as first thing in the morning is a Zen ritual. Then there is the after-meal Espresso, mid-afternoon Espresso and Espresso when a friend comes over to my place.

Well, here is the thing. If you go to visit an Italian friend in Italy and he/she decides to introduce you to his/her family and relatives (and we are sure he/she will do that), eventually you will have to drink from 4 to 5  espresso per day. Every time you will step into a house, you will receive the same question “Posso offrirti un caffè? ( “Would you like a coffee?”). Usually, the answer "NO" is not an option. Anyway, your answer probably would not matter, people will act as you would have said yes and they will start preparing coffee with their old Moka. Because in Italy coffee means hospitality.

HOW TO BREW...HOW TO DO IT SERIOUSLY

1. KNOW YOUR MOKA

Once you got your Moka, you will understand that a Moka is something personal which will Brew coffee for you every day (several times per day) for the rest of your life. Yes because of a Bialetti last Forever, you need just to change periodically a gasket. The fascinating thing is that every Moka its unique and day by day you will learn how to improve your brewer abilities. 

Despite you may think, Moka is really easy to use. It is made of three parts:

1. Il "bollitore" o "caldaia" (boiler)

Fill with water up to the safety release valve. (If you want to avoid a watery caffè).   

2. L' "Imbuto-filtro" (funnel-shaped metal filter)

Insert it in the boiler. Then, with a spoon, fill with coffee and create a slight mountain. Don't press with the spoon. 

 

3. Il "Bricco" (Upper part or container)

The upper part is screwed onto the base. This is the container where the espresso will flow.
Hold the base and tightly screw the upper part of the pot onto the base. Remember "tightly screwed" Otherwise, your coffee will come out from the junction.

2. THE RIGHT CAFFE' REALLY MATTER

Espresso is coffee brewed by forcing a small amount of nearly boiling water under pressure through finely ground coffee beans. Espresso is generally thicker than coffee brewed by other methods, has a higher concentration of suspended and dissolved solids, and has crema on top (a foam with a creamy consistency). As a result of the pressurized brewing process, the flavors and chemicals in a typical cup of espresso are very concentrated. 

This means that choose the right Ground Coffe Beans is really important. 

WHY ITALIAN COFFEE IS DIFFERENT?

THE ART OF BLENDING

The excellence of Italian coffee is the end result of the ideas of Luigi Lavazza, the first person to create blends. He studied the different origins and characteristics of the coffee plant, and started the art of blending to meet the tastes of customers, creating the blends.

The result was that Caffè by Luigi Lavazza and his secret recipes became really famous in the city of Turin. Now, the creation of perfect blends is one of the tasks of professional coffee tasters who, thanks to their experience, have a keen sense of taste and smell to create the exact flavor they are looking for. 

The evergreen coffee plant grows between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn. It includes approximately 66 species, of which only two are cultivated and marketed: Coffea Arabica and Coffea Canephora, known as Robusta.

The sublime balance of each blend is obtained by mixing several types of beans, which differ in terms of quality (Arabica or Robusta), type of processing (washed or natural) and, lastly, country of origin. All the specific benefits and characteristics of these different elements are integrated and compounded to produce a perfectly balanced coffee, with a distinctive flavor, aroma and body.
