Ever wondered what an espresso is or whether it is just another fancy term for coffee? The short answer of it is, yes. An espresso is the liquid extracted from the coffee bean and you can get a good cup of espresso through a specific preparation of robusta or arabica coffee beans. What sets an espresso apart from your typical cup of coffee is in its preparation.
Other traditional coffee-brewing methods can take time as the hot water must be slowly-filtered through your grounds. This of course, puts several precious minutes between you and that fresh cup of coffee.
Espresso machines were invented to assist baristas make expresso more consistently and efficiently. These machines pressurise and shoot hot water through finely ground coffee beans to give you a caffeine-packed shot of coffee.
With so many variables constantly at play in the art of making espresso, the ability to regulate any of these aspects becomes a key factor in creating a repeatable shot recipe. Synesso has an industry leading heat and water system with maximum stability, and minimal loss, which results in a system that varies no more than 0.75 at any given time in the brew cycle, regardless of how busy you get. Say goodbye to temperature surfing.
Pre-infusion has become a commonly used tool in espresso making. By saturating the puck of espresso grounds, the espresso extracts more evenly, and reduces the negative impact of channeling. The Synesso technology includes programmable Pre-infusion time per group.
