    Espresso and coffee beans aren't quite comparable, as espresso is a brewing method, and can use any kind of coffee bean.
    That being said, espresso has a higher caffeine content than regular drip brewer coffee:
    Espresso has an average of 72mg caffeine per oz whereas drip brewed coffee has only 13.5mg per oz.
    In case you're interested in more coffee information, I've written a three part series on coffee.

      Thanks for answering my question.  I checked out your coffee hubs.  Great tips for the different ways of brewing.  I learned that I should coarsely grid my beans for my new french press.  I'm so excited to try it!   Welcome to Hubpages!
