Espresso - the recharger

Busy day today, so I went to my usual recharger - a dark steaming shot of espresso.
While many find espresso to be too harsh, particularly first thing in the morning, I find it's an acquired taste that usually develops after several all-nighters studying for exams. I like my espresso in the mid-afternoon or evening, and the bitter taste is excellent when paired with a super-sugary chocolate dessert.

Espresso is the base of many coffee drinks, so learning to make good espresso is the gateway to making lattes, cappuccinos, and mochas. If you ever plan on expanding your caffeine repertoire beyond basic coffee, I highly recommend buying a Moka pot or espresso maker. Be sure to use a fresh dark roast that's ground very fine (DON'T skimp on the grinder! Buying a cheap grinder for gourmet coffee is equivalent to putting water in your gas tank).

Soon, you could learn to make coffee like this...
