The Espresso Martini in 2022
The Espresso Martini is making a strong comeback. Bartenders around the world are bemoaning this delicious cocktail’s return to popularity, while patrons eagerly awaiting its reappearance in their local bars and restaurants. What could possibly cause such an occurrence? The problem is complicated, but the solution can be found if we work together.
The problem with Espresso Martini in bars & restaurants in 2022
The recipe is a classic that’s as simple to prepare, with just the right balance between flavors. Add espresso and vodka along with coffee liqueur or Irish cream for an extra dash of class! Shake it up in your shaker cup then strain into martini glass(es). Top off each drink by adding three coffee beans. Sounds easy.
So what´s the problem? The espresso and the right balance of the Espresso Martini ingredients. And Bartenders are prized for two things – their speed of service and quality of their cocktails.
It takes you some time to pull out a shot of espresso from your espresso machine, measure the ingredients and shake it up for the desired creaminess and silky texture. And top up in the Martini glass with three espresso beans. A bartender could have served another whole party in that time. The Espresso Martini is slow. And when a bar is packed, every second of delay feels like an eternity.
When one customer sees an Espresso Martini being served, suddenly everyone wants it. The bar staff might end up making ones all the rest of their night and getting more behind with frustrated meanwhile as well!
Some small bars choose not to offer them, because of the lack of a espresso machine or service slowdown. But this choice comes at a cost with the trending Espresso Martini cocktail of the year in 2022. Bars are missing out huge revenue from this where the Espresso Martini can go for high prices.
What solution we can offer bars for Espresso Martinis?
The Naiko team comes up with a extremely popular solution amongst top bartenders in the world.

Who is Naiko and where we can help with your Espresso Martini?
Naiko is the Hawaiian name for Nitrogen. It´s a gas that we all breathe with a content of 78% in the air. So we decided to go with Naiko as our company name, because our idea is all about Nitrogen.
Nitro cold brew coffee was first offered at third wave coffee shops in the early 2010s. By this time, Nitrogen gas had been added through gas cylinders and put into pressurized kegs with cold brew coffee to allow for dissolving of nitrogen within them – so they could then be served with a delicious foam on top and a creamy texture to enjoy!
In 2015, our Founder was travelling to California and saw the complicated machinery of coffee shops. This inspired him greatly, so one day he decided that maybe if there were some way for us could make better quality drinks without having such an expensive setup and inconsistent quality, then people would want them too!
The system they came up trumps on involves 3 major improvements: 1) Integrated cooling system without the need of separate fridges 2). Nitrogen directly from ambient air to avoid gas cylinders 3.) Self-priming pump to avoid handling with kegs.
In 2018 we tried different beverages through our Naiko machines and came up that Espresso Martinis and the Naiko Nitro Machine is a perfect match.
In 2022, the Naiko system is used all over the world now. You only need electricity to start serving through the Naiko® Nitro Dispenser. The nitrogen comes from the ambient air with an infusion pressure of 4 bar pressure, the integrated cooling systems cools down the beverage to a temperature of 2°C and the build-in in pump starts automatically when you push the tap handle and has a serving speed of 100 ml / 4 seconds.
