History Of Espresso Coffee

Espresso originated in the beginning of 20th century. In the year 1901, Luigi Bezzera of Milan worked up a coffee machine that had a boiler. The machine forced steam and boiling water through coffee and into the cup. That machine became the foundation of Espresso.

In 1903, Desiderio Pavoni bought Bezzera’s patent; and in 1905, Pavoni’s company started manufacturing machines based on Bezzera’s design. Those machines became popular as La Pavona Machines.

And now, Espresso machines have electric pumps that force water through coffee.


Although Espresso Coffee made its first appearance in the early 19th century, it became hugely popular in the 1980s. One of the main reasons is its distinctive feature: compared to regular coffee, preparing Espresso requires specialized equipment and skill, thus making it a social experience. Today, with the general rise of interest, home espresso machines are immensely popular. And you hardly find a cafe today that doesn’t serve Espresso Coffee.

Some Interesting Facts

There is a misconception that Espresso is a type of Coffee Bean. Just like any other coffee brewing methods, Espresso, too, is derived from coffee beans. That is all. Any type of bean can be used to make authentic Espresso Coffee. Also, it is neither a blend nor a roast type. It’s simply a different type of coffee that’s thick and strong.

It is not uncommon to add 3-4 shots of Espresso to a cup of coffee. It can be drunk without mixing it into coffee or with milk. But if you want the real taste, you should drink it neat – without blending it with milk or coffee or sugar. By having your own commercial coffee machines, your coffee will taste great!
