    Dark Roast and Crema

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I have been experimenting with really dark roasts (until all the beans covered with oil, some call it French or Italian roast) in my espresso blend components and notice that I am getting less crema in my espresso shots. Does anyone know of any relation between dark roasted beans and crema yield?

    My understanding is that some of the derivation of crema comes from the oils - thus if the oils are removed from the bean, you would have a reduction in crema.
