Reviews for Easy Espresso
"Really good. I brew this on the stovetop (boil water, add coffee, pour through a reusable coffee filter over a pyrex cup), add 1/3 c sugar, and keep in the fridge. To make a tasty iced coffee, use 1 part espresso, 4 parts milk. My husband loves it."
"Yum! We left out the lemon. Why it's even in the recipe, no clue! It's simply not needed. What we did add was just a healthy two-finger pinch of kosher salt. It helps to develop the flavor of the coffee in the short amount of time the grounds are in contact with the hot water as it brews."
