Full and intense taste
The ristretto is gaining ground among coffee lovers. Ristretto is the Italian word for limited. It is a cup of coffee that is even smaller than an espresso and is characterized by its intense, full taste. A ristretto is prepared with the same amount (or possibly a little more) of coffee as that of an espresso, but has a stronger taste. This is due to the smaller amount of water. The ristretto is often served in an espresso cup and provides a delicious pick-me-up, for example after an extensive dinner.
Pressed under high pressure
Espresso originates from Italy and owes its name to the method of preparation. Because espresso is the Latin word for squeezing. With a classic espresso, the coffee is pressed under high pressure. This creates a small amount of concentrated coffee with an intense taste. Although the smaller size of an espresso might suggest otherwise, the taste of a good espresso is big. So it probably doesn’t surprise you that when Italians order a caffè, they aim for an espresso. In the Netherlands, too, the small and powerful cup of coffee is indispensable.
The lungo coffee variety gets its name from the time it takes to make it. Because lungo means long in Italian. You can see this type of coffee as a long espresso. When preparing a lungo, you also use the same amount of coffee as with an espresso. Because the preparation time is longer, the coffee has a lot of time to impart its flavor to the water. That is why the lungo still has a rich aftertaste. The lungo is a real everyone’s friend that you can drink all day long.
