Espresso

A standard Lavazza espresso is 7 grams of freshly ground coffee, extracted to 25-30ml within 25-30 seconds. A perfect espresso always has a 5mm hazel 'crema' and is the heart of every espresso-based drink. A 'ristretto' is a short extraction of 15-20mls used for weak drinks and a 'doppio' is a 14g dose of coffee, extracted to 25-30ml for strong drinks.
