My question is regarding instant coffee granules versus instant espresso granules in various recipes. Are these distinctly different and should I buy two different products?

They are two different products. Instant espresso powder has a stronger coffee flavor than the instant coffee granules. I decide which ingredient to use depending on the amount of coffee flavor I would like in a particular recipe.
