Word of the Week

Espresso, it's spelling and pronunciation

Espresso...noun: a strong black coffee made by forcing steam through ground coffee beans.

Seems simple enough right? Wrong! I don't drink it, but my husband does, and it still surprises me when an employee who supposedly specializes in everything coffee says EXPRESSO.  Seriously?  Lift your head, look around the store, and read the menu.  There is no X in espresso, no matter how many shots you have to add.
