Know your coffee:
pour-over vs. espresso
For coffee lovers, knowing the difference between pour-over and espresso is crucial to understanding their preferences. The main difference is the process of brewing: pour-overs use gravity to flow water through the coffee powder, while espresso requires pressured water. This leads to a longer extraction process for pour-over coffee, resulting in more acidity and aroma. In contrast, espresso is denser and thicker, with a concentrated flavor and crema.
