The classic form of espresso is a small shot (2-3oz) of pressure brewed coffee made using about 1tblspn of finely ground coffee. There are several ways in which this original format has been altered to come up with various types of espresso coffee drinks. Here is a short list of some of the more popular varieties:

Americano - espresso with hot water added to dilute the strength

Macchiato - espresso shot with a small amount of frothed milk on top

Corretto - espresso mixed with a bit of alcohol

Cappuccino - a shot of espresso topped with 1/3 steamed milk and 1/3 frothed milk

Mocha - a latte with chocolate powder/chocolate sauce added

What do I do to make the taste of my coffee less intense/bitter?


This might sound like a joke, but I'm serious. Use less coffee. Grind size only has limited effect. When you buy different beans, you may find you need to use more or less coffee depending on the type of bean itself. In fact, I'd bet buying different brands is what is confusing you regarding how _much_ to use.

Bialetti mukka express


First off, the best milk for foam is skim milk (0% fat). The higher the fat content, the less foamy your foam will be.

The foam is created by the steam/hot coffee from the lower part being forced through the doohickey and into the milk. That means that if the coffee itself isn't "perfect", the foam won't be "perfect". I've found that using different types of coffee (e.g. different grinds) or filling the coffee bin to different levels results in more or less steam/pressure being passed through, so the foam is better/worse. For example, if I put too much ground coffee in the bin or use too fine a grind, it blocks the water/steam that's going through the coffee, resulting in less coffee and weaker coffee, and also resulting in less foam.

Turn off machine at night?


Turning off an espresso machine at night is a bad idea. There are many gaskets and seal's that mate to different types of metal surfaces all of which contract and expand at different rates when hot or cold. If you keep doing this you will eventually break the seals.

Weak coffee and pale crema.


If you get weak coffee from espresso machines:

Check water temp, if water temp is insufficient , most common is scale heating element , faulty element, faulty thermostat.
Check if water is dripping right at the center of the filter, if it is dripping on one side because the orifice is clogged, that can result in weak coffee.
Coffee blend not well distributed on filter basket.

On Espresso machines:

Check water temp, same as filter coffee machines (thermostat element, scale on heating chamber).
Ensure that coffee is filled correctly in the filter cup (fill at level), and well pressed.
Ensure that the coffee mixture that you are using is not too coarse, buy the apposite one for espresso.
Ensure that you are not leaving the machine brewing for a time that is too long, and Italian coffee cup is very small, approximately one regular shot.

On the hob moka pots (espresso, Moka and Bialetti type):

This are the trickiest ones, you need art and practice to get a good espresso with a Moka, but when you learn, the result is better than what you may get with an home electrical espresso maker.
The frame on the hob must be not too strong, and the mixture coarse but well pressed, with water at level tag, or you will get a weak coffee.
On Mokas a good strategy is keeping hob at minimum, and turning up the flame at top when coffee starts coming out.


Note: insufficient pressure and clogged lines on electric machines never give you a weak coffee, exactly the opposite.
Not pressed mixture always gives weak coffee, but too much pressed mixture may give you coffee with bad taste.

Coffee tastes like metal


THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE COFFEE. This has to do with water filter system and most importantly descaling of machine, as over time the metals in side machine and tubing get a mold type build up. Its a chemical reaction from the water and tubing and the coffee and metals. To 100% solve this, descale the machine with water and vinegar mixed. Do this a couple of times and use bottled water to fill water tank if you do not have a good water filter tap system. I have been the espresso business for over 16 years with 4 locations, and it has nothing to do with the coffee. If it was the coffee or poor coffee it would tasted burned or bitter, but NOT tasting like metal.

Please rate my solution as you see helpful, Thanks Mike Espresso Expert
