Caffè Ristretto is coffee brewed on an espresso machine. The recipe stems from the original espresso, but the brewing time is interrupted when there’s 15 - 20 ml of brewed coffee in the cup. The result is a more concentrated drink than the espresso.

The starting point is to interrupt the brewing when a smaller amount of coffee is brewed, which gives a brewing time of approximately 18 -20 seconds if no other parameters are adjusted. By increasing the dosage of coffee powder or harder packing of the coffee, you can increase the brewing time.

To brew an espresso, you need an espresso machine and a grinder.
