No espresso powder, but can I "alter" this stuff instead?

I want to try a "new-to-me" brownie recipe using espresso powder. Part of the directions calls for 2 Tablespoons of 'very strong espresso powder' and a stick of butter and some chocolate all combined and to be melted in the top of a double boiler.

All I have is an unopened tin of espresso ground coffee --not instant and not powder -- and I admit to not being a coffee drinker, so I'm clueless.

Would what I have work if I pulverize the grounds in my Cuisinart food processor, or my Oster blender, or will they be grainy and nasty in the finished brownie?

Other suggestions greatly appreciated if there is a way to used what I have! If not, I'll spring for some instant espresso powder next time I'm at the store. Thanks!
