Like previously explained making 8 cups of coffee is not just pouring hot water over Nescafe. It is an equally important making process as the British people would say “cooking tea”. To get the best out of coffee one too needs time and expertise. Most common ways of making coffee are brewing and espresso. Brewing is the method where hot water is poured over ground coffee to brew. The water would seep through the coffee in the process absorbing all the flavor and chemical compounds from the coffee. This would then be collected by filtering the liquid leaving aside the powder in a separate pot, whereas Espresso is forcing a small amount of hot water (nearly boiling but not boiling) through the ground coffee under pressure. Hence making Espresso thicker creamier than other brewed coffee. Hence making the coffee more concentrated with flavor and chemicals from the coffee beans. Note that most of the common coffee Latte, cappuccino, and mocha all are to be made with the base being espresso coffee.
