- It should be rich, but not too rich (again, high levels ofrichness are more characteristic of espresso ristretto shots).
- It should NOT be sour.
Thereof, is Espresso stronger than coffee?
There'sapproximately 80 mg of caffeine in a serving ofespresso and 80 to 120 mg of caffeine in a serving ofdrip coffee. The average shot of espresso is twoounces in size and a standard cup of coffee is 12 ounces,which leads to the latter having more caffeine percup.
