What are Espresso Beans?
Actually, there is really no such thing as an espresso coffee bean per se. "Espresso" refers to the method of making the coffee, not to the bean itself. However, many coffee roasters market particular roasts as "espresso roast", using beans that have qualities that are conducive to the production of crema. Many think of an espresso roast as being dark, but this is also not necessarily the case. The main thing to look for in a roast that is going to be used for making coffee using the "espresso method" is that it generates good crema. Other than that, you need to find a blend that appeals to your personal taste, be it a light, medium, or dark roast.
