Hi Everyone

I have a question that's been confusing me. Is the bean used to make drip brew coffee the same bean used to make espresso? I know espresso uses more finely grined beans, but before the grinding, are the bean the same?

Also, when I am ordering a coffee drink, I get confused on whether it's an actual 12/16 ounce coffee drink or whether it's just a shot in one of those small shot glasses. Can someone help me out here please? Thanks.
