The appearance of the coffee bean is a greasy glossy surface, almost black in color. The bean becomes very brittle and fragile.
A Spanish roasted espresso has a spicy flavor, and is dense and strong.

Because of its specific flavor, Spanish roasted beans are rarely sold in their pure form, but rather are used to make blends.
