Ground Coffee

Ground coffee is what brewed coffee is made from. It is made up of ground coffee beans, just like wheat flour and cornmeal. Use ground coffee as you would a tea bag: add hot water, let it absorb for a few minutes, then strain and drink. The resulting infusion is what we all know as coffee.

Ground coffee comes in several sizes, depending on what kind of coffee you intend to make. We'll get a hat in a little while. However, until then we must emphasize that ground coffee is not instant coffee. It looks very similar and may even smell the same. But there is a big difference and trying to make an espresso with instant coffee instead of ground coffee will be a failure.

Espresso Ground Coffee

Ground espresso coffee is usually a typical Italian blend of Arabica and Robusta roasted coffee beans that have been ground for use in a traditional espresso machine. Espresso means fast, and a cup of espresso is a small shot of fresh coffee, with a concentrated aroma, covered with thick cream. Ground espresso coffee is usually a slightly darker roasted coffee, because the darker the espresso coffee beans, the more porous the coffee beans become, and this improves the preparation and extraction process when making an espresso coffee with aroma and aroma.

Some Italian coffee roasters believe that a 100% slightly roasted Arabica coffee makes a better cup of espresso coffee because there is less chance of extracting the bitterness from the ground espresso coffee. The UK coffee market has embraced espresso and, as it has a lower level of caffeine than American coffee, many choose a serving of espresso as a healthier option.

How much Ground Coffee per Cup

So how many coffee grounds should you use per cup? Well, it depends on a few things, not least the size of your cup. Basically, most coffee machine manufacturers define a "cup" as 150 ml (about 5 ounces of liquid).

Most machines come with a pre-measured spoon for measuring coffee spoons, to be used to load the machine. A "spoon" of coffee is usually 1 tablespoon (spoon), ie 5 grams of ground coffee.
