The Difference Between Espresso Coffee And Drip Coffee

Now the popular drip coffee, compared with the familiar espresso coffee, what is the difference between the two forms of coffee? For many coffee drinkers, the definition of the two is a little unclear.

1、 Coffee Beans

  1. Drip Coffee:

Usually, single coffee beans are used as raw materials for brewing, and the degree of roasting is used from light roasting, medium roasting to dark roasting.

  1. Espresso Coffee:

The Italian formula of a coffee shop is called House Blend, which is usually widely used in espresso coffee drinks, such as cappuccino, American coffee, and latte, and most of them are roasted dark to match milk and hot water. This kind of coffee can only be ground by a professional grinder, which is also an important foundation and key to making high-quality espresso coffee.

2、 Preparation Method

  1. Drip Coffee:

Basically, most drip coffee uses a filter cup, that is, it is extracted under atmospheric pressure. Even if you use boiling utensils such as Mocha pot and Aeropress, the pressure during extraction will only reach about three atmospheres at most.

  1. Espresso Coffee:

Using the espresso coffee machine for extraction, the pressure of the machine will make the extraction state reach nine atmospheres. The coffee ground in the filter cup will bear the heavy pressure of 130psi, making it release a large amount of coffee substances. The taste is thick, which is suitable for making latte with milk or American coffee with water.

As coffee lovers, we drink coffee every day. If so, it's important to avoid overconsumption of caffeine, which could harm your health. Using a quick and easy caffeine calculator is a great choice.

3、 Difference In Service Size

  1. Drip Coffee:

Generally, the serving size is about 5~10 fl. oz. (increase or decrease according to the coffee water ratio)

  1. Espresso Coffee:

Generally, the serving size is about 1~2 fl. oz. (increase or decrease according to the coffee water ratio)

4、 Differences In Caffeine

If the ground and grinding size of coffee is the same, because caffeine is a water-soluble substance, the longer the brewing time, the more caffeine will be released.

The brewing time of single coffee is usually 1-3 minutes, and the brewing time of espresso is usually 20-30 seconds, so the caffeine content of single coffee will be higher under the condition of the same coffee ground and grinding size.

Therefore, the caffeine content of iced coffee and cold extracted coffee, which are extracted for a long time, will be much higher than that of other coffee.

You can see that there is a great difference in the concentration between the coffee brewed by hand and espresso. When milk is added to a single coffee, the aroma and flavor of the coffee itself will be covered by milk, which is less suitable for blending.

If you want to do better in daily coffee time, can help you brew a better cup of coffee at home and get more coffee resources to do better.

5、 Conclusion Of Difference

Can single coffee be brewed by machine? Yes, but all cooking parameters should be adjusted. Finding the appropriate brewing parameters with single coffee beans can also brew a single origin espresso with good quality.

Can I wash the espresso beans by hand? It's OK. However, for dark roasted beans, parameters such as water temperature and grinding size should also be adjusted.

Please remember that all brewing methods and appliances are to provide better coffee. Coffee exists for people! Coffee can make everything possible.
