Here are some fun facts about Starbucks expresso:
- A perfectly pulled espresso shot is the heart and soul of Starbucks handcrafted espresso beverages. It’s the foundation of the millions of handcrafted Lattes, Macchiatos and Americanos served by Starbucks baristas around the world.
- Espresso is a concentrated shot of freshly ground and brewed coffee. The rich extract is produced when finely ground coffee comes into contact with hot water under high pressure, which cascades into the cup in a steady, thin stream.
- Howard Schultz, founder of Starbucks, visited Italy for a trade show in 1983. He ordered a Caffè Latte in a coffeehouse in Milan. Something clicked when he saw the espresso prepared before him. It was the passion that went into crafting his drink, and the community and connections formed around great coffee that made a lasting impression. He was inspired to bring espresso to Starbucks.
- A perfect shot of Starbucks espresso takes 18–23 seconds to brew. Each shot is added to the beverage within 10 seconds to help ensure it has a balanced, intense espresso flavor, otherwise the rich foam layer on top of a freshly poured espresso begins to break down and the flavor changes. A perfect shot has three distinct layers: the Crema (top layer), the Body (the middle layer), and the Heart (the bottom of the shot).
