The difference between coffee, espresso and cappuccino
While each of them can hit the spot, just about everybody likes their warm caffeinated beverages prepared a certain way.
Coffee is made by pouring hot water over coffee grounds and letting it steep or brew. The resulting liquid is what you pour into your cup.
An espresso is also made of water and coffee grounds, much like a standard coffee. However, espresso is more concentrated than coffee. Espresso machines shoot hot water through tightly ground coffee at a higher speed than coffee machines. The heat of the water and the pressure at which it is pushed through the ground coffee is what makes an espresso an espresso. An important factor to keep in mind is that espresso is not a specific roast of coffee, but rather predicated on the aforementioned method of creation.
The key difference between espresso and cappuccino is that cappuccino machines use milk to make their delicious warm drinks. A simple way to think about cappuccino is that it’s an espresso that has had steamed milk and milk foam added to it.
