Rated 2 out of 5Â by Jodimcknz It's black
I've purchased espresso-finished furniture before that was a deep, dark brown. This is black. Completely black. Normally I would say, "Ok... Lesson learned. Check your color wheel next time;" but the picture shows a deep brown table. Additionally, the picture shows a table with a nice finish. The actually table almost looks as if it was painted black with a cheap, flat paint. There does seem to be some sort of finish on top so that it's not unpleasant to the touch; however, the stain (which looks like paint) needed a second coat. This look might be nice in some decor... Maybe a modern distressed? BUT it is not what is shown in the picture.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Kat525 This is a nice table for the price!
We ordered this table online and received within four days. It was very easy to assemble. It has a coating on it that if you did not use coasters there are no marks left by drinks. However this coating is not visible, it is just the finish on the wood. (It's not laminated or shiny*) This table is stylish, sturdy, heavy, a real great piece in our living room! I would recommend this because the price is reasonable for the product. I also want to say this is a dark espresso color. By no means is it black, however it is a dark brown which is what we were looking for.

This coffee table is listed as "dark espresso" so I was thinking it would be a very dark brown, I have other espresso end tables. This table is black, not brownish at all, the picture makes it look like it has a brown in it, but the one I got is black. The quality is good for the money, just disappointed in the color, and it has a smell to it, kind of a chemical smell. I would suggest buying a different coffee table if you are looking for an espresso brownish color because this is not it
