There’s no perfect, right method. All these brews are — and will stay — part of coffee culture because each person likes something different. Each of these brews brings out something different from coffee grounds.
Espresso is made from pressure-brewing finely ground coffee beans. It is usually served in a pre-heated demitasse cups, white small cups that can hold 2 - 4 ounces of liquid.
This is one of the oldest, classic ways of coffee brewing. You’re probably used to it since many households have been using it for years. You can place any type or flavour coffee in one of the machines, so you can always make exactly what your taste buds desire.
