How to make an Italian espresso at home video recipe

A true Italian espresso is short, naturally sweet and easy to brew. And you don’t need an expensive barista-approved coffee machine to make it at home.

The first espresso was brewed in Turin, Italy, at the end of the 19th century, but it wasn’t until Gaggia released their Gilda machine in the 1940s that Italians started making espresso at home.

Nowadays, most Italians use a pod machine to make their espresso not because they’re in a hurry – coffee is still a ritual in Italy – but because it promises a great espresso time after time without barista training. When you’re looking for a short shot of coffee flavour that best accentuates the notes of the beans, you can’t go past an espresso.

To brew an authentic espresso, you will need:

POD MACHINE

ITALIAN-MADE ESPRESSO PODS

A SMALL DOUBLE BARRELED SHOT GLASS

Our Gimoka and Gran Caffè Garibaldi espresso ranges are specifically designed for Nespresso machines. Designers spent years making them so they’re a perfect fit, which means they work just as well as a traditional Nespresso capsule and won’t harm your machine in the slightest. The brew process isn’t put under any extra strain when you use our compatible capsules and the coffee produced is just as good, if not better. Also Nespresso has repeatedly stated that using compatible capsules won’t void your warranty, so even if something goes pear shaped (which it won’t), you’re still covered. So sit back, relax and dream of Italy. Oh, and save hundreds of dollars a year drinking our not only cheaper, but also authentically Italian coffee!
