Which espresso machine would you choose, the V8, V10 or V12?
Did you know that Espresso is made with ground coffee when hot water is forced through the compacted finely ground coffee at high pressure. In 1901 an engineer from Milan, Luigi Bezzera invented and patented the first pressurized cylindrical coffee machine. In the early 1940s Achille Gaggia invented a piston-based espresso machine that improved coffee by eliminating the burnt taste and giving espresso a thicker consistency. Initially for professional use in coffee bars, the espresso machine production gradually became avaialable for use at home and has led to some amazing machines like the V12 coffee maker above.
The word Espresso literally means “when something is forced out.”
