    Yes you can. The difference between the regular coffee and espresso coffee is how fine the 2 are ground. Espresso is ground much finer than regular coffee. I use regular coffee since it is so much cheaper. Lately I have been hand grinding my coffee in an antique grinder for much better results (in my opinion)

    BTW you can buy regular coffee and grind it finer to espresso grind if you want to do it that way.

    The espresso wont be as rich or as strong but it will work.
