The different types of espresso

Café William has a beautiful range of espressos, which you will recognize by their **red bags. Why not learn more about the different types of espresso? Pick up your pencils, take notes!**What could be better than a good espresso to wake up in the morning? But do you really know the type of espresso you are drinking?

There are two types of espresso: American espresso and Italian espresso. At William, we focus more on Italian. In fact, all of our espressos are Italian-style, except Barista Costco. What makes them different?

AMERICAN ESPRESSO

American espresso is darker (more roasted, therefore less caffeinated). This is a more "Starbuck's" style espresso, which you will find in many coffee shops. Containing 100% Arabica beans, this espresso forms a less dense crema than its Italian cousin. It is also more full-bodied and usually comes from two or three different origins. The darker roast also causes a light surface oil to form on the beans.

THE ITALIAN SPIRIT

Italian espresso is slightly paler, less roasted, and therefore higher in caffeine. It is made from a blend of Arabica and high quality Robusta beans; moreover, it is the latter that gives it a worthy crema! Italian espresso can be made from three to seven origins, and has more complex aromas. As it is less roasted, the bean is drier than the American.
