    All of you: are you actively trying to make my head explode?
    The word is "espresso." Not "expresso."
    I express my thanks for your attention to correcting this in future posts.

    What to Know
    Espresso is a borrowed word from Italian referring to coffee brewed by forcing steam or hot water through finely ground coffee. This method is quick, involves "pressing" water through coffee, and the word is very close to the English word "express," which shares those meanings. Thus, it is not uncommon, nor wrong, to hear this beverage referred to as expresso.

    Sorry, but according to Miriam Webster, expresso is less commonly used than espresso, but it still OK:

    expresso noun

    ex·​pres·​so | \ ik-ˈspre-(ˌ)sō \
    less common variant of ESPRESSO
    1: coffee brewed by forcing hot water through finely ground darkly roasted coffee beans
    2: a cup of espresso

    I am thinking it isnèt really important whether you drink Italian espresso or English Expresso, as its the same thing.

    "Best Coffee" is subject and highly personal. Some like strong and bitter, others smooth and less acidity, some with milk or cream, others dark roasted and pressed, drenched with sugar.

    We like "all day" coffee, something smooth and not so charged with caffein. Of course, the more coffee is roasted, the more caffeine and acidity is developed, the more bitter it becomes, and less smooth it is.

    Dominicans like their coffee like mud, cooked in a greca.

    Different strokes....
