Espresso is the world’s most popular coffee drink. It’s also become one of our favorite Sunday pastimes — and that’s because it’s such an easy drink to make on your stovetop.espresso is a hot beverage made from roasted notes of espresso beans mixed with sugar, milk, cream, or added flavors like sugar syrup, caramel, or chocolate chips. To make the perfect cup of espresso, you need great coffee grinds, a good pot of water (a good cup of filtered water will result in the best flavor), and high-quality espresso beans. If you can find them at a specialty store or online, look for properly ground and properly packaged beans. You could even go to a local roaster if you have access to only fair trade or organic beans. The last thing you want is for your caffeine fix to be spoiled by rotisserie chicken and mac ‘n cheese!
