Espresso - "A Fast Cup of Coffee"

Luigi Bezzera, the owner of a manufacturing business invented Espresso at the turn of the century.  Luigi Bezzera was simply trying to figure out a way to brew coffee faster.  He figured if he could just add pressure to the brewing process it would speed things up.  Thus the "Fast Coffee Machine" was created.  His idea of a fast cup of coffee turned out much better than he had planned, what he ended up with is a better, fuller tasting cup of strong coffee, as well as a much faster process.  He found that the quicker more efficient brewing method allowed for the quality of the beans to be extracted as opposed to over extracting he had previously experienced.  The term "Espresso" means fast in italian, hence the term.

It wasn't until later when Desidero Pavoni purchased the rights from Mr. Bezzera for the espresso machine that it became popular.  Pavoni was extremely successful in marketing the product and probably changed the way people drink coffee from then on.  Just look around!  Coffee and Espresso shops are popping up everywhere, even in the U.S. it has become not only popular for the delicious beans, but has given us a new place to socialize.

Espresso Timeline:

In 1901 Luigi Bezzera filed a patent for the espresso machine that contained a boiler and four "groups". Each group could take different size filters that contained the coffee.  Boiling water was forced through the coffee and into a cup.  Ambrogio Fumagelli says that this was the birth of (fast) espresso coffee.

In 1903 Luigi Bezzera's patent was then purchased by Desiderio Pavoni and put to market in a big way.

In 1905 The Pavoni company begins manufacturing the espresso machines soley based on Bezzera's patent.

In 1927 First espresso machine was installed in the United States.  It was a La Pavoni Espresso Machine installed at Regio's

in New York.

In 1938 Cremonesi designed a piston pump that forced hot water through the coffee.  It was installed at Achille Gaggia's

coffee bar.

In 1946 Gaggia begins manufacturing the commercial piston machine.  Resulting foam or cream layered coffee or cafe'.

    How To Build Mobile Android Apps And Apple Ios Apps Business #iphone

    "Model #1 - Micro-Transactions Business"

    You need to learn this “secret” in today’s new commerce economy – micro-transactions.
    It simply means this, people are happily spending the $0.99’s and $1.99’s all day long, regardless of whether there’s a recession or not.
    Obviously, those who can “predict” the future are going to make fortunes for themselves. I mean, you’ve heard stories of marketers who make $100,000 from this opportunity alone.
    The proof is already in our faces. And the truth is, it’s happening so fast.
    But the good news is it’s not too late for you to be a part of this “Internet reborn”.
    It’s like getting to start all over again at the ground floor opportunity – having the “second chance” to make it big. This time, it's yours to take.
    "Model #2 – Free App Business"

    Sometimes you wonder – how do these apps and games make so much money when they’re 100% free?

    Money from advertisers.

    I couldn’t think of a better business model where EVERYONE is happy – the user gets to use the useful apps or play the fun game for free, the developer makes money from the advertisers and the advertisers get to promote their offers and products.

    Actually, my game app adopts the same strategy to make money.

    And I just LOVE it. I can literally make money while giving away apps for free.

    Do you know that you can be making as much as $1.50 when someone download the advertiser’s app for free? I don’t even need to sell my own app.

    Imagine if you just have 10,000 app downloads and within your app, you’re “sharing” the advertiser’s app. That’s the EASIEST way to making thousands every month. My students get hundreds of thousands of app downloads – imagine how much money you could be making by “giving away” apps for free.

    How about $200 - $400 per day? Here’s one of our students who’s making that…
    "Model #3 – Database Business"

    The currency for mobile business is the “app downloads”. And interestingly, it’s amazingly easy to get users to download your apps for free.

    The big money is in the app downloads. Just think - Facebook and Google bought Instagram and Waze for a billion dollar each, when both of these apps aren’t making millions of dollars. It’s the database.

    Just imagine if your app was lucky to catch on the trend and somehow exploded overnight. It’s time to cash out. There’s where you’ll be making MILLIONS without trying so hard to monetize it.

    Maybe you don’t make a billion. Or multi-millions.

    But dude, I’m fine if I can make a million or even “as little” as $200,000. I mean, wouldn’t that be good enough for starting an app business part-time, which grow on its own without hard work?

    A friend of mine does brokering for app business. I took this listing from him, of apps sold…

    EROVER Two Wheels Smart Self Balancing Scooters Electric Drifting Board Personal Adult Transporter with LED Light

    EROVER Two Wheels Smart Self Balancing Scooters Electric Drifting Board Personal Adult Transporter with LED Light

    CONTENTS - Scooter, 100-240v AC charger with US plugs, User Manual (in English, basic manual - not really required). If you plan to use this overseas, all you need is a power adapter (US plug to your local plug) - no voltage adapter required since it is already has a 100-240v charger.

    BODY AND DESIGN - The scooter itself weighs approximately 29lbs, and can be carried around in one hand with reasonable ease. Children say below 12-14 may find it difficult to carry this with one hand. It has a nice solid build which feels stable and of good quality. The tires are all solid rubber, no worries about getting a flat. The scooter has 2 pressure-sensitive motors, one under each foot pad, that are connected with a single axle running horizontally across the frame. Putting pressure on the foot pads engages the motors and this is what makes you go forward. The motors are intelligent in that if you apply pressure on only one foot, it starts to rattle, telling you that it can't move forward in that manner. Pressure needs to be balanced on both motors in order to move. Both motors have a purple color light in the front which gives it a cool look. The lights fire up when you stand on the pads. If you are turning, the turning side light starts to blinks and automatically turns back to solid once the turn is complete. More on the smart motor later.
