Pour Over Coffee
In pour over brewing, hot water is poured slowly over coffee grounds in concentric circles, which allows for a more even extraction process. The resulting cup of coffee offers intense flavor while still maintaining a "cleaner" mouth feel with more nuanced tasting notes available in the cup.
The French press involves steeping coarse coffee grounds for 4-6 minutes in vessel of hot water, then straining the coffee using a mesh plunger. This method is a great introduction to making better coffee at home, as it's very forgiving. Coffee from a French Press is heavier bodied, tends be smoother, sweeter, and adds some "chewiness" to your brew.
Espresso is brewed under high pressure, usually 9 bars,
which results in a tiny concentrated shot (~30-40ml) of coffee that’s packs a punch. Described as velvety, intense, sweet & intense; it’s the only brewing method that creates Crema (foam on top). Due to it's strength, many opt to use espresso as the foundation of other mixed drinks, diluting it with hot water, ice or adding foamed milk to create lattes or cappuccinos.
