Are Coffee Beans and Espresso Beans The Same?

"Beans, Beans the musical fruit, the more you eat the more you....too....well nevermind thats a whole different bean...:)

Today we're talking about Coffee beans vs Espresso beans...

People ask me all the time, "Are coffee beans and espresso beans the same?"

So, I thought I would write a quick answer to that question that will probably solve the simple answer without a lot of fluff.

I hope you enjoy.

Are They The Same?

Coffee and espresso beans may look similar but they are actually two different types of coffee beans.

Coffee beans are unroasted, making them denser, while espresso beans have been roasted, which makes them slightly lighter.

When preparing coffee or espresso, the difference between the two is even more pronounced.

The Difference.

Coffee is brewed through a process involving hot water running over ground coffee and then being strained using either a paper filter or metal mesh filter.

Espresso is made by forcing hot water under high pressure through tightly-packed finely ground coffee.

When looking for the perfect cup of joe, it is important to know the differences between coffee and espresso beans in order to get the desired flavor you're looking for.

The density of unroasted green coffee beans gives regular brewed coffees a rich full-bodied taste.

Roasted espresso beans give espressos their strong flavors and intense aromas because roasting brings out more aroma components than brewing does.

Despite their differences, there’s no reason you can’t enjoy both!
