Does anyone know why some coffee beans seem to have a 'sheen' to them, and some are just the natural, sort of dull finish? I notice this particularly with some of the 'gourmet' beans; not the flavored ones, but the different roasts; some will have a shine, and some don't. Are they being treated with some sort of flavor coating? Or am i just nuts, and need to get my glasses changed!
