  1. Of course you can, but you might not like the flavour.
    Espresso beans are Robusta beans, and these are high caffeine, but not great flavour, whereas normal coffee is made from Arabica beans that give flavour, but aren’t so high in caffeine.
    If you have an Espresso coffee, you’re after the high caffeine kick to get you going, so flavour isn’t important, so if you make a coffee with Espresso beans, you’ll very likely only do it once.

  2. yes. There isn’t such a thing as espresso beans. It’s just coffee beans roasted dark enough so that when you make an espresso, it won’t taste horrid. Usually meaning medium to dark roasts. You can certainly brew darker roasted coffee, drip it, chemex it, french press it, turkish it. Just know that it’s roasted darker and the beans were selected to provide a certain range of tastes

  3. Espresso is a method of making coffee. It is not a roasting style and it is not a particular bean. Any coffee, from anywhere in the world, of any coffee variety or cultivar, roasted from light to dark can be made into a cup of espresso.
    Some producers will make a blend of coffee that they think is best for making an espresso and some will package that coffee ground very finely so that it works best in an espresso machine. You can make regular coffee with these. The finely ground coffee will need to be treated a bit differently than coffee typically ground for a drip style coffeemaker otherwise you will likely over-extract during the brew and get very bitter coffee with some unpleasant flavors.

  4. When you get “espresso beans” you’re merely shopping for low beans that are amalgamated and roast in an exceedingly method that suits coffee. … It’s fully fine to grind them and use them in your regular kitchen appliance.

  5. Let’s first clarify things: there are no espresso beans or regular coffee. All coffee is can be brewed as a filter or as espresso. Thing is, typically filter coffee can be brewed lighter, preserving more acidity which, I’d brewed as an espresso, might taste too sour. Similarly, darker roasted “espresso” coffees can be brewed as a filter, but they might taste too roasty and bitter.

  6. Yes you can, in fact it is encouraged to experiment with your coffee brewing methods and chosen beans to find out what you like the most.
    It’s important to note here that the grind is a critical aspect of the brewing process and so I wouldn’t recommend brewing a filter coffee with beans roasted for espresso if they are already ground. The brew will take far too long and won’t be enjoyable / will most likely be bitter and dry. ‘Espresso roasts’ are generally just one roaster’s take of how a particular coffee should taste for the brewing method. Of course taste is a subjective thing so always be open minded when it comes to trying different roast levels for different brew methods.

  7. Yes and obviously yes! The condition is just like the grind should be fine for espresso process.
    There is no hard rule as espresso beans will always make espresso and regular makes a regular cup. You can make any as coffee is experimenting, just the grind should be appropriate or brewing will not be proper.
