That's a pre-rebar frame Espresso that is. Looks in good order too, with a suspension seatpost. I think it's pre- 2006, maybe a 2004 bike.
Quite rare, I suspect, I've not seen one in London where Espressos are almost as common as red buses. It does look extremely nice.
Congratulations. A lucky find. As it's been unused for a while check the wheels are true, the brake pads and wheel rims are clean, and the spoke tensions are ok before you go far
. Sometimes, bikes get retired for a minor fault which then gets forgotten about. :-)
