What is espresso?

Espresso is a brewing method that involves forcing pressurized water through finely ground coffee. This extracts the coffee's most flavorful components and aromatics, resulting in an intense and full-flavored brew. Espresso is the base for all of our lattes and mochas.

Caribou Coffee also sells whole espresso beans, which is a certain type of coffee with a darker roast that we recommend for making espresso at home.
