What is a Ristretto Coffee

For the connoisseurs of caffeine, ristrettocoffee is a term that resonates with a curiosity and a vibrant aroma. The word itself, "ristretto", is Italian for "restricted" or "limited". So, what sets ristretto apart from your regular cup of Joe? Let's unravel the mystique of ristretto coffee together.

The World of Ristretto: An Introduction 

A traditional espresso shot is produced by forcing hot water under high pressure through finely ground coffee. It results in a concentrated, flavourful brew that forms the base for many coffee delights. However, when we talk about ristretto, it's a stronger, bolder, and more intense version of the espresso.

Ristretto being 'restricted' refers to the relatively lesser amount of water used to brew it compared to an espresso. It encompasses the very essence of the coffee beans, eliciting the characteristic bold Flavors, the fragrance, and the exquisite taste.

How is Ristretto Different? The Brewing Technique 

Similar to espresso, ristretto uses the same quantity of coffee grounds. Here's the twist though, ristretto employs only about half the amount of water. It results in a shorter shot, typically 15-20 ml, compared to the 25-30 ml of espresso.

The key to a perfect ristretto lies in the high pressure used during the extraction process. This art of brewing diminishes the acidic and bitter elements, leading to a sweeter and more profound flavour profile.
