National Espresso Day 2021: 6 Drooling Ways to Enjoy This Special Day

In case you missed it, it’s National Espresso Day! For those of you not familiar with the day, it’s a day dedicated to the delicious beverage that is the humble espresso.

This tasty beverage was first discovered in 1884 in Italy. It was made to help laborers get through the day, and while coffee did exist, it was a lot more watered down and not as effective in keeping energy levels high. By developing a new way of brewing coffee beans, drinkers were able to harness the full potential of the caffeinated beverage.

So, to honor this powerful pick me up, let’s celebrate Espresso Day the best way possible: indulging in it!

There are so many ways to enjoy espresso. From making homemade espresso to coffee ice cream and even baked treats – there are so many National Espresso Day ideas.
