Pressure Brewed Coffee

What is Pressure Brewed Coffee:
It is regular black coffee brewed under
High Pressure.
It is brewed similarly like an espresso.

Pressure Brew Aroma System:
Use a regular espresso machine.
Use a medium to light roast coffee blend
(may add some robusta).
Grind coffee medium to fine.
Brew 6 oz. of coffee into a cup.

How does Pressure Brewed Coffee Look Like:
If brewed right, it is crowned with a gold colored froth, also referred to as crèma, preserving the full aroma of the freshly brewed coffee.

Pressure Brew Aroma System:

Coffee Extraction on Schaerer Coffee Machines:

Coffee Extraction on Filter Drip Machines:

If the extraction is kept under 20 seconds, following benefits result from Pressure Brewing:

Benefits of 
Pressure Brewing:

Because of the short extraction time, the extraction of unwanted substances such as caffeine and tannin is reduced!


Up to 30% less caffeine compared to regular filter coffee.


100% aroma is extracted providing the unmistakable aroma of freshly brewed coffee.

Tannic Acid:

Almost no Tannic Acid (Tannin), enabling people with sensitive stomachs to enjoy their coffee again.


Color is extracted at the beginning and starts fading after a few seconds.

Ensure that the extraction is kept under 20 seconds.
If the extraction is too long the coffee will turn bitter,
also referred to as over extracted.

Reasons for over-extraction:

  • Grounds too fine. Use a courser ground to reduce the extraction time.
  • Brewing pressure too low. Get your machine checked out.
  • Cup size too large. Use maximum 6 oz. cups.

 By the way:

Understanding the above extraction curves, after 20 seconds the espresso machine can be turned off and hot water can be added to the cup without sacrificing the quality of the coffee! This is how Caffe Americano is made, except a dark espresso roast is being used.

If large cups are desired,
a commercial espresso machine
with Water By-Pass capabilities is required
to prevent over-extraction!
