					Coffee Espresso Machine - It's Been Around How Long!
The coffee espresso machine seems simple enough, push a button and instant espresso or cappuccino. The history of the espresso machine though
was anything but easy for the people who put their whole heart and soul into making it work. The word espresso is defined simply as coffee made by
forcing steam through finely ground coffee beans. Some would say this sounds simple enough, but after you ponder about all the different techniques
that had to be developed to allow this to happen; well it's certain you will change your opinion. The espresso machine began its journey about 100
years ago.

The first official coffee espresso machine comes to us from France. It was created by a gentleman named Louis Bernard Rabaut in 1822. The
machine was a simple contraption that allowed steam and water to flow through a filter lined with fresh coffee beans. Mr. Edward Loy Sel de Santias
showed his version of the espresso machine at the Paris Exposition in 1855. He impressed the crowd by being able to brew up 2,000 cups of what
was then called fast coffee in an hour.

Mr. Luigi Bezzera, an Italian, received a patent for his coffee machine in 1901. The machine used the same principle as Louis Rabaut's in the early
1800s. The machine was supposed to enable people to make fast foam coffee without the need of waiting 10 minutes for a cup of hot Joe.

In 1903, Desiderio Pavani purchased Bezzera's patent and La Pavoni machines were introduced to the U.S. in 1927. Americans gawked over this fast
foam coffee. The taste however was another story. The steam and boiled water gave coffee a burnt flavor.

In 1938, the taste problem of the espresso was fixed by adding a piston pump to the design. The pressure the spring lever applied to the beans
changed the taste to a more enjoyable taste that we all enjoy now.

The final advancement to the espresso machine emerged in 1961. M. Faema created the electric pump as an addition to the original design. This
pump advanced the evolution of the espresso machine. In 1991 the first espresso machine was created for in home use; thus enhancing the
accessibility level to use this incredible machine in the comfort of your own home.

Before you enjoy that next sip of espresso or cappucino, think back to those pioneering inventors. Inconsequential as a first cup of coffee may seem, it
took their creativity and and vision to bring about an a marvel of ingenuity and still serves its purpose more than a hundred years later.

In a world where things are so simple and fast paced. It's almost amazing to ponder about how the early pioneers who brought us foam coffee had
such a struggle to do so. All their hard work and dedication however did pay off in the long run. Today people from all over the world can now take
advantage of this great invention all in the comfort of their own home.
