Regular Coffee vs. Espresso Coffee

Espresso coffee differs in many different ways from regular coffee. For example, with espresso it is created using an espresso machine. Furthermore, the espresso is generally fresher when it comes to taste than its regular counterpart. The freshness comes from using the finest beans and longer roasting times. Regular coffee does not roast as long, leaving the rich coffee oils to stay confined.

However, regular coffee does carry more caffeine than espresso coffee, even though the latter carries a better, richer taste. Less caffeine comes from the fact that because hot water flows very quickly into the coffee grounds, it does not gather all of the caffeine out of the grounds.
