Is the Espresso Roast ground to the usual coffee filter grind level? or is it ground down to espresso-grade?
The ground espresso coffee is only ground down to use in a filter machine. it is not fine enough for an espresso machine. You need to by it in whole bean and grind it yourself, but you must use a Burr Mill coffee grinder. It grinds the beans between metal plates and not a blade and it grinds beans very fine. A regular blade grinder will not grind fine enough for an espresso machine, and you will get a weaker less bodied cup of joe...
