ESPRESSO VS. COFFEE | WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?
Coffee and espresso are both popular coffee beverages, but there are several differences between the two.
Read on below to learn more about how these two popular beverages differ from one another.
Coffee is typically brewed by soaking ground coffee beans in hot water and allowing the water to slowly drip through a filter, while espresso is made by forcing hot water through finely ground coffee beans using high pressure.
Coffee is typically served in larger volumes, ranging from 8 to 16 ounces (240 to 480 milliliters) or more, while espresso is served in small, concentrated shots of 1 to 2 ounces (30 to 60 milliliters).
FLAVOR & STRENGTH
Espresso is much stronger in flavor and more concentrated than regular coffee, with an average of 30 to 50 milligrams of caffeine per ounce compared to 10 to 12 milligrams per ounce for coffee.
Coffee can be brewed using a variety of methods, including drip coffee makers, French press, pour over, and cold brew, while espresso requires an espresso machine and special equipment to prepare.
