ESPRESSO VS COFFEE
Espresso is a bold brew made with a high ratio of finely ground coffee to water using high pressure extraction—usually with an espresso machine. Coffee is brewed with more water and coarser grounds usually through drip or immersion methods using an auto drip coffee machine, a French press, or pour over gooseneck kettle. Coffee is most often enjoyed black or with a bit of cream while espresso forms the rich coffee base of drinks like lattes, cappuccinos, mochas and more.

DRIP VS POUR OVER COFFEE
Drip coffee usually refers to that familiar drink conveniently prepared in an auto-drip coffee pot at home. Pour over coffee is a style of drip coffee that’s manually brewed using a gooseneck kettle. The brewing processes are similar—hot water is slowly poured over ground coffee beans. Pour over coffee is preferred by those looking for more control over each hand-crafted cup, while drip coffee machines can offer more consistency through automation, as well as brew a larger batch. If you love waking up to a fresh brew waiting in your coffee pot, a KitchenAid® coffee maker with programmable brew times is right for you.
