DRIP VS INSTANT VS ESPRESSO
• For both drip and instant, all you need is hot water and a minute. But drip coffee bags hit the sweet spot between fast and flavourful. The bags contain ground, whole-bean coffee that has yet to be brewed. It’s a better way to savour the flavours.
• Bettr Barista’s Pamela Chng explains that in the old-school instant variety, powdered and crystallised coffee is brewed and then dehydrated so it dissolves when you add hot water.
• Espresso coffee, which requires a proper espresso machine, is concentrated and more intense in taste because the coffee is brewed under immense pressure.
