What Happens If You Brew Espresso Beans In A Drip Coffee Maker?
Espresso coffee beans are meant to be brewed into small, potent shots of coffee by using an espresso machine, but this isn't the only way to use these strongly-flavored beans. You can brew espresso beans using a basic drip coffee maker for a delicious cup of joe, as long as you follow a few tips for success.
Espresso beans can be brewed using an electric drip coffee maker, a French press, or with the pour-over method. These coffee beans have a creamier and heavier body than other beans, so prepare for them to taste different from your regular brew, but the most important thing to keep in mind is the grind.
Pre-ground espresso is ground very finely, which can make French press or pour-over coffee very bitter since the hot water will have to work hard to pass through the fine grounds, extending the extraction time. If you choose either of these brewing methods, consider grinding your own espresso beans for better results.
