Coffee Tip

Regular Coffee vs. Espresso

What is the difference between regular coffee and espresso? For the most part it comes down to taste. Sometimes people say it’s all about the level of grind. You go to any Starbucks and you will see a bag of coffee beans or ground coffee labeled espresso. But it’s not the type of roast or the grind at all.

It’s the brewing process is what separates the two! Espresso is made by forcing steam into the ground coffee. Regular coffee is made by pouring water over ground beans in a filter. This process also gives its taste different. Because regular coffee is coarse, it tends to be very robust and bright. Where Espresso is considered very dark; the bean is very finely ground, almost like a powder, and extremely aromatic. So when it comes down to it, the difference between Regular Coffee and Espresso all comes down to how it’s brewed.
