I am considering brewing very strong coffee and drinking less. To explain instead of drinking two big cups in the morning, I want to try potent espresso and drink less quantity of liquid , but I have never brewed espresso.

Any tips? or suggestions for a stronger cup of coffee? :-D :-D
I make a strong cup with 4 tablespoons of drip grind French Roast coffee and 8-9oz. water. I put the grounds in a #4 filter in a filter cone directly above my coffee mug. Then I first pour about 2oz. of boiling water in, let that go through the filter (should pass through fairly rapidly), then pour the rest of the water through.

If you are using very finely ground coffee, it is probably preferable to pour all of the water in at once.
