Crema, I learned recently from my coffee-loving son-in-law, is the froth that develops on the top of a freshly made cup of espresso. He has an espresso machine, and he’s become quite adept at turning out a most pleasing cup of coffee.
I finally broke down and got myself a French press, before I found the one my son left in my pantry before he moved to the UK. So now I have two. One, his, is a one-cupper. Mine is a little bigger, and could probably make three small cups or two big ones.
One of the things I enjoy is that there always some frothy foam at the top of my cup when I pour the coffee from the press. I like it. It makes better coffee than my old drip appliance, richer and more full-bodied.
I’ve always enjoyed the foam on a root beer float; or a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows melting on top. Somehow, a drink or a treat like a root beer float is just better when it’s frothy on the top.
Why is that?
