Medium Roast Gourmet Coffee Beans
Roasting gourmet coffee beans naturally changes both the physical and chemical characteristics of the coffee.
Barely roasting a green coffee bean to achieve a Light Roasted Coffee results in a more acidic coffee that has more caffeine and is lighter brown in color. Alternatively, roasting a green coffee bean for a long period of time results in a Dark Roast Coffee which is less acidic, has less caffeine and is a deep dark brown color with an oily appearance.
Medium roasted coffees fall somewhere in between these two and can have subtle caramel or cocoa flavors while maintaining a milk chocolate color.
A coffee's taste and aroma is derived from a combination of how long it is roasted for and the coffee's origin; how and where it was grown, the type of soil, elevation, moisture, etc. Some coffees are best as a dark roast, and others are more suited to a light roast, the majority of the world's Gourmet Coffee beans are at their best when medium roasted.
