Report Description


Espresso, a type of coffee shot that originated from Italy is made by forcing pressurized hot water through finely grounded coffee beans. It is considered the purest and strongest form of coffee and is more popular in Western countries of the world. Espresso is often consumed in the form of a small coffee shot or sometimes also preferred with a combination of milk, cream, chocolate etc. Espresso is made from coffee beans, similar to regular coffee; however, the coffee beans of espresso are ground very fine, compared to regular or drip coffee. The process of making an espresso is faster due to the mechanical procedures used and contains less caffeine than drip coffee, and has a bitter taste (one cup coffee compared with one espresso shot). Despite less caffeine content, espressos show a high impact of caffeine due to its consumption method. A cup of coffee is consumed over a certain period, whereas a shot of espresso is gulped at one time, thereby increasing the impact of caffeine. Espresso coffee is generally consumed at restaurants, coffee shops, malls etc. as it is mostly a machine made drink. It is difficult to make this drink without espresso machines and hence is not commonly made at homes.

The espresso coffee market is growing at a significant rate and the foremost reason for the growth is the changing culture of out-of-home coffee drinking.

To attract a larger audience, coffee makers also blend espresso shots with other beverages such as latte, cappuccino, mocha etc. The overall coffee market has witnessed a rise due to consumer preference for caffeine to curb sleep, hunger, and hangovers.
