Help Me Understand Espresso Brewing?

opinionatedchef | Dec 23, 201409:03 PM

I love the flavor of coffee but I am not a sophisticated knowledgeable-about-coffee drinker. I like it over ice cream, in sweets, as an iced coffee at home, or as a triple vente latte at Starbucks. My Love is loyal to his Chemex, so when he mistakenly bought me decaff ground espresso at his artisinal coffee shop instead of decaff ground coffee, he decided to try the mistake in his Chemex. It tastes pretty awful. I tried it with milk but it did not make it palatable. Over ice cream tonight it was o.k.

You would have predicted this disaster? Why would espresso brewed in a Chemex differ from coffee brewed in a Chemex? Th you for the education.
