Espresso is a concentrated coffee drink brewed by forcing a small amount of hot water under pressure through finely ground coffee beans. Espresso has a thicker consistency than coffee prepared by other brewing methods. It has a higher concentration of suspended and dissolved solids, and crema.

Espresso can be pulled in three major variants: normale, ristretto, and lungo. The three variants differ by the amount of water used to extract a given coffee quantity, and the extraction time.
