The Sims: UnleashedEdit
Espresso bars were introduced in The Sims: Unleashed, with Travelin' Joe's Espresso Bar. When placed on a community lot, it would allow Sims to buy a cup of espresso for §12, and would spawn one of three NPC baristas; Travelin' Griff, Travelin' Greg, or Travelin' Joe. If placed on an Old Town lot, it would also spawn the wandering saxophone player W.C. Friendly. Friendly will often spawn directly in front of the bar, preventing Sims from purchasing an espresso until he moves away.

The Sims 2Edit
In The Sims 2: University, the espresso bar was re-introduced as the Impresso Espress-o-Matic. In addition to being able to buy espresso (for §20), a Sim could make a few simoleons by working at the bar as a barista. The espresso bar was also reintroduced in The Sims 2: Apartment Life.
When a Sim orders an espresso, the barista will produce two cups, and serve one to the customer. If a second Sim orders an espresso, the barista will serve the remaining cup, but will not produce more unless a third Sim orders from the bar. If an espresso bar is located on the same lot as a restaurant, servers from the restaurant may go over to the bar and dispose of the second cup of coffee, forcing the barista to produce a new batch every time a Sim orders from them. This is fixed with the coffeecuphack mod from More Awesome Than You.
The Sims 3: University LifeEdit
Sims can buy various drinks (hot beverages, organic brews, herbal teas and energy drinks) as well as baked goods. Buying drinks raises a Sim's level in the Rebel social group, but buying food does not. An NPC barista is automatically assigned to the coffee bar when it is placed on a community lot.

The Sims 4: Get TogetherEdit
Sims can order coffee and food either "for here" or "to go", which makes no real difference except for "to go" coffee being in a plastic cup instead of a mug, and "to go" food being in a paper bag instead of on a plate. NPC baristas are only automatically assigned to espresso bars in cafes. On other community lots (or on residential lots) they can be hired for a fee.
There are two espresso bars for sale: one that comes with an espresso machine and coffee grinder, and one that does not. Players have to buy the equipment separately if they buy the bar by itself in order to use it.
