Espresso blend?

Ok from what I understand, I thought espresso meant the way you make the coffee. When a company sells an espresso blend, what exactly do they mean? I'm guessing they mean a mixture of beans that is highly recommended to use when making espresso to get the best taste of coffee? Or is it just a play on words and means absolutely nothing when making espresso?
One would hope an "espresso blend" is a mixture of coffees sourced from different origins blended and roasted to deliver a particular type of cup characteristic when used in an espresso machine. many of my customer buy my espresso blend for use in a french press but to be honest the way the coffee is blended and roasted makes it far less suited to drinking through methods other than espresso machine extraction
