Espresso Beans offer a versatile ingredient that can be used to create a variety of coffee beverages, from the classic espresso shot to lattes, cappuccinos, and macchiatos. The intensity of the flavour and the rich crema make it ideal for creating layered coffee drinks, where the espresso forms the base, and the steamed milk and frothed foam add texture and sweetness.
Originating in Italy in the early 20th century, espresso has become a global phenomenon, synonymous with Italian coffee culture. Espresso beans are typically made from high-quality Arabica and Robusta coffee beans, roasted dark brown to develop their intense flavour and characteristic crema. The roasting process caramelizes the natural sugars in the beans, resulting in a rich, complex flavour profile with notes of chocolate, caramel, and a hint of smokiness.
