What is Espresso Ground Coffee?
Espresso ground coffee is usually a typical Italian style blend of roasted Arabica and Robusta coffee beans which have been ground for use in a traditional espresso machine. Espresso means quick, and a cup of espresso coffee is a small demitasse shot of fresh coffee with a concentrated flavour topped off with a thick crema. Espresso ground coffee is usually a slightly darker roasted coffee because the darker the espresso coffee beans are roasted the more porous the coffee bean becomes and this enhances the brewing and extraction process when making an espresso coffee bursting with aroma and flavour. Some Italian coffee roasters believe that a slightly milder roasted 100% Arabica coffee makes a better cup of espresso coffee because there is less chance of bitterness being extracted from the espresso ground coffee. The UK coffee market has embraced espresso coffee and because it has lower caffeine levels than an Americano coffee, many choose a shot of espresso as the healthier option.
