On June 6, Google will honour the 171st birthday of Angelo Moriondo, the godfather of espresso machines, with a special Google Doodle.

The name "espresso" comes from the word "express," and it's a drink that fits all three categories.

Moriondo was born into a family of businessmen on June 6, 1851 in Turin, Kingdom of Sardinia.

It was passed down to Moriondo's father, who went on to establish a successful chocolate firm.

Despite the fact that coffee was very popular in Italy, people spent a lot of time waiting for it to brew.

According to Google's Google Doodle page, coffee was once the hottest item around in 19th century Italy.

The third meaning of espresso has to do with the method used to brew the coffee.

Angelo Moriondo steadily refined his design after building the first machine with the help of a mechanic.

Moriondo stepped in to save the day, calculating that preparing numerous cups of coffee at once would allow him to serve more clients at a faster rate.

In 1884, Moriondo unveiled his espresso machine at the Turin General Expo, where it won a bronze medal.
