Freshly brewed and born in the heart of Milan, Italy, this piping hot cup of coffee made its way through the ranks of the beverage mafia and established a worldwide repute. Be it India, Philippines, Singapore, Somalia or Chile, there wouldnt possibly be an urban locale existent without a coffee joint that serves the famous espresso with its eclectic fragrance. But restoring the same taste as the Italian wizards of coffee seemed impossible. So various industry minds stepped into this market and commercialized the entire coffee scene. Nowadays, the world over has espresso- producing machines with its specified requirements of coffee beans, the percentage of beans to be crushed or ground, the sugar levels and the heat generated for giving out every espresso.
With the advent of the commercial coffee grinder, espresso cups are available even in the lesser known suburban locales of the metropolitan cities as well as the tiny towns adjoining them.
