Also known as Express, it is a very concentrated coffee. Preparation of Italian origin, is obtained with a coffee or espresso machine to get concentrate of ground coffee through the mixture of water temperature, pressure and coffee preparation time.
Forming a strong liquid with a thick consistency, the Espressos are served in very small cups in which usually small amount of coffee served (20 to 30 ml) with a characteristic layer of cream on the surface due to pressure. It is a powerful coffee aroma and intense flavor.
The American coffee is prepared with a coffee machine because, indeed, this also part of the Espresso. Therefore an American is an Espresso diluted in an amount of hot water, making it a slightly less concentrated coffee, but softer to taste. This is served in a slightly larger than the previous cup.
