What is Matcha?

Matcha is part of the green tea family and comes from Camellia Sinensis plant. It is grown differently to regular green tea and therefore has a different nutritional profile to green tea. Growing the matcha plant in the shade before harvesting, the lack of light increases chlorophyll production and boosting the amino acid content. The tea leaves are then harvested and ground down into a fine green matcha powder.

The Benefits of Matcha

The way that it is grown means that there are more health benefits to Matcha vs green tea. The amino acid profile is more rich in density, especially L-theanine, the amino acid that supports concentration. Matcha is also high in antioxidants, making matcha great for a detox diet. 

With these benefits and it's bright, vibrant colour, Matcha has exploded in popularity recently. Making matcha is time consuming though and fans are always looking for quick ways to make matcha.

Can you make matcha in an espresso machine?

 

Unfortunately, you can not make matcha with an espresso machine.
Placing matcha powder in the portafilter will not produce matcha that is palatable, as the high temperature and lack matcha powder being able to go through the filter, will create a bitter and watery matcha.
