Eggspresso (egg + espresso)

An “eggspresso” (egg + espresso) is a shot of espresso inside of a chocolate Easter egg. Campos Coffee (Australia) tweeted about its “eggspresso” on April 4, 2012. Karvan Coffee (Perth, Australia) popularized the “eggspresso" on Instagram in March 2016.

“Eggspresso” has been cited on Twitter since February 13, 2009, but the term had meant other things, such as an egg in an espresso.

Coffee shops across the globe have started serving coffee in Easter eggs - and the trend could pick up in Britain too.

The eggspresso has taken off in the southern hemisphere in Australia and New Zealand.

Chocolate fans have gone wild for the Easter treat down under.

Karvan Coffee in Perth Australia has posted a series of mouthwatering videos on its Instagram page showing shots of coffee being poured into hollow Easter eggs, melting them a little making them all the more delicious.

Eggspressos Are Espresso Shots Served in Chocolate Easter Eggs, Obviously
by Whitney Filloon Mar 24, 2016, 3:00p @whitneyfilloon
Australia’s enthusiasm for Easter-themed novelty sweets cannot be denied: First came the Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurry, and now coffee enthusiasts Down Under are going nuts for eggspressos — coffee served inside chocolate Easter eggs.

This chocolatey creation sure to rival the sugar content of any Starbucks Frappuccino was made famous on Instagram by Karvan Coffee, a cafe located in the city of Perth. Hollow chocolate eggs with the tops cut off are placed into espresso cups — a seemingly necessary step, unless you want this scalding hot concoction to wind up in your lap — and then shots are brewed straight into the cups. As the beverage is sipped, the confection slowly melts into the beverage.
