Do you need special beans for espresso?

One question we often hear is, "Do you need special beans for espresso?"

There's a palpable confusion when it comes to this topic - due, at least in part, to some coffees being marketed as "espresso roasts." Fortunately, the answer is straightforward: No! You can make espresso with any coffee, regardless of origin or roast, so long as it's ground correctly.

Espresso machines require a fine grind because they push water through coffee quickly. The finer the grind, the greater the surface area, which leads to better extraction during the short brew time.

When shopping for coffee, you don't need to seek out special labeling based on your brewing method. All of our coffees are suitable for all methods. Whether you're using a standard drip coffee maker, an espresso machine, or something in between, the difference is always in the grind!
