Espresso powder and instant espresso

Is espresso powder and instant espresso the same, or is the powder made differently. I can get instant espresso at the supermarket which works fine.I just would like to know what the difference is between expresso instant and espresso powder

I have used both. The powder from KAF is very finely ground compared to the instant but I have used them interchangeably ..

Do you think it's worth getting the powder ?  Would I notice the difference in the taste or is it just that is dissolves better

Moving forward I would just get the instant...I happened to be at the KAF store and bought it on a whim...prior to that I had always used the instant...
