What is espresso coffee and how is it different from filter coffee

Espresso has one thing in common with filter coffee that being the bean. That is where their similarities end. Espresso is a concentrated coffee, extracted with pressured water forced through very finely ground powder. The result is small cup of coffee with a rich consistency, bittersweet taste and golden froth on top known as crema. It requires a minimum 9 atmospheres of bar pressure to extract the fuller flavour from espresso.
