I was given a gift of cold brew beans.
Stupid question, can I just use them in my espresso machine?
I would imagine they are blended and roasted for cold brew......

"cold brew coffee beans" is likely a marketing distinction, not a material difference in the roast. As long as they aren't flavored with fake flavoring - there is no reason you can't use them to pull shots.
