All espresso is coffee, but not all coffee is espresso. Espresso is a term used to describe a way of preparing coffee.
Coffee is a drink made from the roasted seeds of a Coffea plant. Espresso is made by pushing a shot of hot water at high pressure through very finely ground coffee

Schaerer coffee art plus dispenses different amounts


Is the levels issue with milk drinks or with black coffee/espresso? And how old is the machine please provide first 4 digits of the serial number.
First of all, check that the machine definitely has a good water supply to eliminate a blocked filter.
If no fault with supply then the flow meter is faulty. This can occur without displaying a fault on screen, what happens is, if you make around several cups of reg black coffee they may all be different volumes.
If you provide more details I can further assist you in diagnosing.

Are there different types of espresso coffee?


The classic form of espresso is a small shot (2-3oz) of pressure brewed coffee made using about 1tblspn of finely ground coffee. There are several ways in which this original format has been altered to come up with various types of espresso coffee drinks. Here is a short list of some of the more popular varieties:

Americano - espresso with hot water added to dilute the strength

Macchiato - espresso shot with a small amount of frothed milk on top

Corretto - espresso mixed with a bit of alcohol

Cappuccino - a shot of espresso topped with 1/3 steamed milk and 1/3 frothed milk

Mocha - a latte with chocolate powder/chocolate sauce added

How much coffee to add for 20, 40, 60 cups of coffee in the 60 cup DeLonghi coffee urn?


Hi,
I like my coffee pretty strong and I use 2/3 cup coffee to 10 cups of water...
You may be able to use 1/2 cup to 10 cups if you don't want it too strong...
You must experiment a bit as different coffees will vary also...

When I select the large size, it only dispenses a small amount. Was working fine yesterday...


This sometimes happens if you are using a pod/capsule meant for brewing espresso (lower liquid volumes). Perhaps the capsules are packed differently (ie. tighter for espresso pods, looser for coffee pods) and the machine detects these differences, but I'm not sure. On my machine (nespresso brand) there are two buttons, one for espresso (small liquid volume) and one for coffee (larger liquid volume). When I want to make a larger volume, I choose a pod appropriate for making a larger volume. These volumes are usually written somewhere on the sleeve/espresso box, or in the hand booklet that describes that lists the variety of pods offered by the company.
I hope this helps.

No 'real' coffee taste or crema - despite following instructions


Set the machine for the finest coffee and the least water.
You should get a decent espresso.
For a regular cuppa, keep the settings the same and make either a medium coffee combined with a small coffee (jolt) or
make two small coffees.
I have this machine and the crema is nice at this setting.

Don't know nothing abiut the expresso side of this machime


If you read the manual it tells you how to use the espresso part of your machine. As for what to use in it I would say it is personal choice. I only use espresso roast in mine. As a previous owner of a coffee shop I know a little about coffee. For the most part it is not the beans that are different but how they are roasted. I would say try different flavors of coffee/espresso beans to find the one you like best. I prefer ordering my beans online from Kaldi coffee.com
