How to Make Creamy Expresso Coffee

Creamy expresso recipe-E...

Espresso is an Italian-based coffee beverage. It is a concentrated form of coffee served in small, strong shots and is the base for many coffee drinks. It’s made from the same beans as coffee but is stronger, thicker, and higher in caffeine. However, because espresso is typically served in smaller servings than coffee, it has less caffeine per serving.

How to Make Expresso Coffee at Home?

Here is a simple recipe for making espresso coffee at home:


  • Finely ground coffee beans (a dark roast is typically best for espresso)
  • Hot water


  • Espresso machine
  • Tamper
  • Espresso cups
  • Milk frother (optional)


  1. Grind the coffee beans finely and measure out about 1-2 ounces (28-57 grams) of coffee for each shot of espresso you want to make.
  2. Place the ground coffee into the espresso machine’s portafilter and tamp it down firmly using a tamper.
  3. Attach the portafilter to the espresso machine and turn on the machine.
  4. Place a clean espresso cup under the portafilter and let the machine extract the espresso shot. This process should take about 20-30 seconds.
  5. If you want to make a milk-based espresso drink, such as a cappuccino or latte, steam, and froth some milk using a milk frother.
  6. Pour the espresso into the prepared cup and top it with the frothed milk, if desired. Enjoy your homemade espresso!

Note: If you don’t have an espresso machine, you can also make espresso using a stovetop espresso maker or a manual espresso machine. The process may be slightly different, so be sure to follow the specific instructions for your chosen method.
