This from a website on coffee that I won't name:

In case you are wondering what torrefacto coffee is:
Torrefacto roasted beans are a unique feature to Spanish coffee. Combining
the beans with sugar during the roasting process makes the torrefacto beans.
First the beans are roasted to around 150-200 degrees Celsius. The sugar is
then added to the roasting beans and creating their typical shinny black
color. Torrefacto beans are never used alone; they are always blended with
the conventionally roasted brown coffee. The blend ratio can varies
depending on the production location and sales area. e.g Cafés Otero Mezcla
Superior is blended 70 % Natural and 30 % Torrefacto.

Hoffman also has something on it at his website.
