What Kind Of Coffee Do You Use In An Espresso Machine?

Q: What kind of coffee do you use in an Espresso machine? I'm getting an Espresso machine off of Target.com, and I'm not sure what kind of coffee to buy.. is it better to grind your own, buy the pods, or just use regular ground coffee? Thanks!

A: Regular ground coffee will be too coarse a grind for an Espresso. I would invest in a coffee bean grinder and some Espresso or French roast beans (a darker roast is necessary for good espresso). Some places (i.e. - coffeehouses) will grind beans for you if you buy them at that coffeehouse. Some grocery stores also have coffeebean grinders you can use. I don't have any experience with the pods; I think that they're only good for machines made for pods.

Discuss It!

If you really want good expresso, but a coffee grinder. Grinding the beans at the store is a waste of time. The secret to really good expresso is in the oils you get from the beans. When you grind the beans at home, you have fresh oil, and hence, better coffee. Also, coffee beans last a lot longer whole. After the coffee is ground, the oils start losing their potency. This is the real purpose behind buying the whole beans.
