What is the difference between espresso and drip coffee?

The main differences between espresso and drip coffee are the brewing method, coffee grind size, and strength of the resulting coffee.

Espresso is a concentrated coffee beverage made by forcing hot water through finely ground coffee beans at high pressure. The resulting espresso shot is a small amount of coffee, usually around 1-2 ounces, with a rich and intense flavor, thick crema, and a higher concentration of caffeine compared to drip coffee.

Drip coffee, on the other hand, is made by pouring hot water over coffee grounds in a filter basket and letting the water slowly drip through the coffee and filter into a carafe. The resulting coffee is typically milder and less concentrated than espresso, with a smoother taste and a lower caffeine content.
