Espresso is the major kind of coffee in various parts of the world, though it is a relatively recent phenomenon. With the increase of many chains in the 1990s, espresso-based drinks became more popular around the world.
This unique drink is a concentrated coffee beverage brewed by putting hot water under pressure through finely-ground coffee. Unlike any other coffee types, espresso enjoys a thicker consistency, a higher concentration of dissolved solids, and foam. The brewing process preserves all of the flavors and chemicals in a typical cup of coffee. Consequently, espresso is the base for other drinks, such as lattes, cappuccino, macchiato, and others.
While espresso has more caffeine than most beverages in general, a 30 ml shot of espresso has about half the caffeine of a normal 180 ml cup of drip brewed coffee.
At Maatouk, blends and roasts are carefully selected to preserve creams and flavors, especially for the Mondo Moderno line for espresso cans, beans, or pods.
Espresso is like no other beverage in the world. It has exclusive beneficial effects on the mind and the body. It improves clarity and concentration, motivates creativity, cuddles the senses and evokes countless sensations and memories. Its aroma and body largely influence its exceptional characteristics.
"Espresso", yes, but its indescribable effect lasts for hours to become an experience, yet a feast for the senses. It is not just a drink, but a crucial beverage that touches millions of lives every day!
