Well, I’ve seen this question pop up numerous times while browsing the web, and the answer is complicated since you can’t really make an authentic espresso brew with Keurig, despite the popular belief that some single-serve coffee makers want you to believe.
First and foremost, for making an espresso, the machine has to have high-pressure during extraction, while in other terms, the beverage needs to be extracted through coffee grounds underwater pressure.
To be more specific, the pressure is what divides the brewing process, not the temperature or the quality of the ground coffee. However, finding the best espresso K-cups on the market will probably enhance and enrich the coffee quality that you’re going to get from a Keurig.
Did we make a proper introduction for Keurigs? This unit is mostly known as a single-serve coffee machine which has become lately one of the most essential tools to have in many households, obviously, everyone loves coffee, that’s why.
You can also use a Keurig in your office, work, and for those that appreciate a decent tasting hot coffee, they’ll really love the fast performance that Keurigs provide.
Now, to get back to the point, if you want to make an espresso using a Keurig, make sure you follow these steps:
-First, you need to fill the jug with clean and freshwater, while afterward, heat it up to 200 Fahrenheit degree, that’s the most preferred number for heating because it delivers more flavor at that degree. The temperature has a great impact on how much the machine extracts.
-Next, make sure you use the one-two brew ratio, so basically you have to put around 1-2 tablespoons of coffee beans for every six ounces of water, pretty simple right, you just pour that into the portafilter.
-And lastly, after the machine is finished with the brewing process, all you need to do is simply put the portafilter back to your jug, turn it on and set a timer for approximately 25 seconds. As you start both the machine and the timer, and it’s important to note that you can’t wait for the cream to come out, pour this brew into your cup, and now you can enjoy a strong cup of coffee.
For more convenience, you can also put some milk into the jug, and you can press the Latte or cappuccino button on your machine, while afterward, all you need to do is wait for the milk to froth. All and all, it’s pretty simple, but again I have to tell you that you won’t really get the same results as you would with an actual espresso machine, but if you’re limited to a Keurig and you’re stuck with that, then you can try these steps that I mentioned above, I’m pretty sure they’ll help.
