Are the coffee beans you find on desserts or say on the tiramisu cake pops at Starbucks just plain jane regular coffee beans or are they different?

I am wanting to make some of the tiramisu cake pops cause my SIL loves them, and I was trying to figure out where to find out where I would get the coffee beans? Are they the same as the ones you find in the grocery store? Or are they treated/cooked (or what ever it is they could do to them) to make them more soft/edible?

Yep, just plain regular coffee beans. A milder roast will be less bitter than a darker roast, though.

Thank you! icon_smile.gif That makes it easier since I don't have to hunt the town for them.

Just FYI, but coffee beans are espresso beans. You don't need a specific kind of bean to make espresso, just something good with the right grind. icon_wink.gif

Espresso beans are coffee beans, but coffee beans are not espresso beans.
