  1. Espresso is strictly coffee, brewed with a high-pressure machine.
    Coffee is healthy if the beans are roasted, grounded, and brewed properly, plus, consumed without cream or sugar, and in moderate amount per day.

  2. No. Neither are more healthy or less healthy than the other. And coffee has very minimal effect on health one way or the other. Espresso is just coffee, a bit stronger than regular brewed. A one ounce shot of espresso has about 2/3 the caffeine of an 8 ounce cup of coffee (64mg caffeine vs 100 mg caffeine). But caffeine in moderate doses also doesn’t affect health much.
    So not much effect either way.

  3. Espresso is considered healthier than drip coffee because a coffee filter is not needed to make one. The espresso-making process allows coffee’s natural oils, and minerals to flow into the coffee. It may be worth noting that because espresso is unfiltered, it could raise the cholesterol levels in your blood.

  4. Espresso means “express” in Italian, a hint at one way it’s different than coffee, says Megan Meyer, the director of science communication at the International Food Information Council Foundation.
    “The process takes about 25 seconds to brew a 1-ounce shot and requires a special machine or pot to make it,” she says.
    While drip and pour-over coffee send hot water over coffee grounds (over a longer period of time), espresso is made by forcing boiling water or steam under pressure through finely-ground coffee beans.
    The hot water, pressure, and very finely ground beans make this an intense beverage, says registered dietitian nutritionist Lisa DeFazio, RDN. The concentrated drink is a smaller serving size than a regular cup of drip coffee, about 1.5 to 2 oz.
