Espresso Tazzina di caffè a Ventimiglia.jpg Coffee brewed by forcing a small amount of nearly boiling water under pressure through finely ground coffee beans. Angelo Moriondo’s Italian patent for a steam-driven "instantaneous" coffee beverage making device, which was registered in Turin in 1884 (No. 33/256), is notable. Author Ian Bersten, whose history of coffee brewers is cited below, claims to have been the first to discover Moriondo’s patent.[9] Bersten describes the device as "… almost certainly the first Italian bar machine that controlled the supply of steam and water separately through the coffee" and Moriondo as "... certainly one of the earliest discoverers of the expresso [sic] machine, if not the earliest." Types of espresso drinks include:

  • Bicerin

  • Cuban espresso

  • Lungo

  • Mocaccino
