Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

When it comes to making the best coffee, there is nothing like preparing a cup of espresso coffee at home. You simply cannot compare a home brewed cup of coffee to the kind of coffee you find at the average café, and you can ensure that the espresso that you drink every day is the best coffee that you will find outside of a specialty coffee store.

Creating your own espresso coffee is a work of art, and there is a very specific process that you should follow when creating an espresso to ensure that you get the best coffee possible.

1. The first step is to find the best coffee beans that you can, as only with the best espresso coffee beans will you actually be able to get the best coffee possible. Espresso beans are usually blended to get aroma, sweetness, and smoothness, and you should always get espresso beans as fresh as possible. You can also try roasted espresso, through the result is fairly bitter.

2. You need to grind the espresso beans properly, and you should ensure that the grinding process doesn't last longer than 25 or 30 seconds total. Using a burr grinder to grind the espresso beans is the best way to ensure that your espresso beans are not heated while they are being ground. If the coffee is heated while being ground it will lose the aroma of coffee, so many burrs using a hybrid of a parallel and a conical blade is often the recommendation of experts.

3. Using the right water to create the best coffee is also vital, and you should use filtered water to make the perfect cup of espresso. Always taste the water in the water tank of your espresso machine to ensure that it tastes good before using it to make your cup of coffee.

4. The time your machine should take to extract the espresso should be between 25 and 30 seconds, and the goal is to have an espresso that is a dark red color.

5. Make sure that your espresso machine has clean burr blades, as any residue of coffee left in the blade could ruin the taste of your perfect cup of espresso coffee.

6. Heat up your espresso cup somewhere other than with your espresso machine. Using a cold coffee cup will lower the temperature of the coffee, which will ruin its perfect taste.

While creating the perfect espresso seems to be a fairly complex process, you can use espresso machines to ensure that you get the best coffee possible. There are many espresso machines that can turn out the best espresso that you have ever tasted, and these many espresso makers can be found in many specialties coffee stores.
