At Cafe Britt we believe that good coffee should not only be delicious, it
should also be easy. We know that our customers are busy and don’t always
have time to spend on elaborate brewing methods. That’s why we
pioneered the movement to popularize espresso drinks in Costa Rica and
simplify your coffee drinking process.
The espresso machine rose to popularity in Italy in the early 1900s and
utilized the delicate process of extraction. Until this point most coffee was
made using infusion methods—allowing coffee grounds and water to
combine slowly through the brewing process. Extraction, on the other hand,
is a far more scientific method that withdraws the best flavors from coffee
beans in an extremely short amount of time.
The machine uses steam pressure to speed up the brewing process and
deliver the freshest cup of coffee possible. Originally, beans used in espresso
were not more than two weeks old and were ground and brewed
immediately prior to drinking.
The espresso method reduced the time needed to prepare coffee
significantly and also produced an entirely new flavor palate. Because of the
immense pressure exerted on the beans to produce espresso so quickly,
they maintain a powerfully distinct flavor.
In order to create this strong flavor, the temperature inside the espresso
machine must be monitored with utmost care. The beans must be roasted
just enough to caramelize their natural sugars without burning the beans
and losing its distinct flavors. The ideal cup of espresso is a deep brown color
with incredibly rich flavor and a thick layer of “crema” (similar to foam) that
will leave a lasting impression on your taste buds.
Our Costa Rican Espresso blend is our darkest roast and features tantalizing
hints of dark chocolate and caramel. We also offer individual serving size
espresso capsules, the perfect choice for on-the-go coffee drinkers who
need a quality drink in a short amount of time.
Until recently, espresso was not a common drink in Costa Rica, and we took
it upon ourselves to introduce this delightful drink to our country. Now it is a
popular choice for locals and many coffee shops in the city to use our
espresso blend to create their cafe drinks.
