Chocolate-covered espresso beans are coffee beans covered in chocolate. They are candy made for the Gilmore girls, who love both sugar and caffeine. A serving of 40 g (about a handful) contains the same amount of caffeine as three cups of coffee.
In actuality, there are no such things as “espresso beans” – espresso is made from the same coffee plants as any other coffee.
