Actually, because espresso beans are roasted longer than other coffee beans, they have a lower caffeine level. A cup of espresso has more concentrated coffee flavor and should not be confused with caffeine content.
An authentic espresso should have a rich flavor, never bitter. Old coffee beans or coffee that has not been freshly ground may result in bitterness. For rich flavor, always use freshly ground beans or relatively fresh pre-ground coffee.
No. Gently compress coffee grounds using the tamper supplied with the machine. And our super automatic espresso machines automatically tamp the coffee for you.
You will know espresso roast coffee beans are fresh if they have an oily surface.
Most supermarkets carry Italian, French or “espresso” beans. Gourmet food stores and coffee shops also carry a wide variety of beans.

When preparing espresso, you should always use the proper bean. Espresso beans are roasted longer than other beans and deliver a full, rich flavor and aroma. Choose an Italian or French espresso roast coffee bean. For pump-driven espresso machines, you should choose a fine coffee grind. For steam-driven espresso machines, use coarse ground coffee.
