What is Ristretto coffee?

‘Ristretto’ is a drink that’s an extremely interesting and the least familiar item on a coffee menu,

A similar amount of dry coffee is used as espresso, but lesser water volume passes through during brewing. Ristretto brewing ratio is 1:2 – 15g input and 30g output, as compared to espresso 15g input and 60g output.

The baristas set up a normal espresso shot and stop it after 15 seconds, or about halfway through the normal espresso extraction process which is why a ristretto has a character all of its own intensely sweet and fruity experience.
