In all the black friday hype, we coffee lovers should not forget that we have something more to celebrate too – national espresso day! Arguably, espresso is the most important coffee related invention- and espresso deserves the special place it has in many hearts.
The history of espresso is published on the University of Scranton’s website – it was invented not too long ago – in 1903 by Luigi Bezzera. His need to find a faster way to brew coffee, resulted in a drink with a lot of fascinating properties. Can I overemphasize that “necessity is the mother of invention”?
