How do you like your coffee?

Take the first step towards becoming a coffee connoisseur with our mini-guide on the different roasts and their characteristics.

 

Light Roasts
Light roasts have a light brown colour and a light body, with no oil on the surface of the beans. This kind of roast has a toasted grain taste and distinct acidity to it. The original flavors of the bean are retained to a greater extent when compared to darker roasted coffees and they also have more caffeine content.

Medium Roasts
Medium roasted coffees are medium brown in color with more body than light roasts. While they have no oil on the bean surfaces, medium roasts lack the grainy taste of the light roasts. This gives them a more balanced flavor, aroma, and acidity. Caffeine content of medium roasts is lower than light roasts but more than darker roasts.

Dark Roasts
Dark roasted coffees are a darker shade that closely resembles chocolate. These roasts have a distinct sheen of oil on the surface, which is clearly visible in the cup when the dark roast coffee is brewed. The coffee’s original flavors are overpowered during the roasting process and will generally have a bitter and smoky or even burnt taste. The amount of caffeine is substantially decreased compared to other roasts.

Spanish Roasts
Spanish (alt. Dark French, Neapolitan) is the name of a degree of roast resulting in nearly completely black beans. Spanish-roasted beans have a shiny surface from the oils on the bean surface. Coffee brewed this roast will have none of its original flavours. Instead, the coffee will have a thin body and a dominant charred taste throughout.

Now with this information at your fingertips, you get to decide which shade of coffee roast is the one for you, and take one step towards being a coffee connoisseur in your own right.
