Espresso. Do you add that imaginary X in your pronunciation or not?

I know many Americans pronounce it like "Expresso"....just wondering.

  • I used to, for a little while, before I read it and thought "oops". But that was before I said it a lot.

    Now I don't say "ex". But I feel pretentious when I don't, so I try to kind of mumble that part or avoid the word all together. Latte, I can say all I want without worrying about pronunciation.

  • No, I say eSpresso. I'm very particular (read:anal) about stuff like that :)
    But if someone says "expresso", I don't act like I don't know what they're talking about and try to make them feel stupid or anything.
