Did you know that not all coffees can handle a dark roast?

It takes a special type of gourmet coffee bean to withstand the intense heat and exposure to a longer roasting process. Not all coffees can handle a dark roast. The coffee bean’s origin has a lot to do with if and how a coffee can be dark roasted. The coffee’s origin will also determine the coffee’s aroma and taste.

For instance, an espresso roast on two different types of coffee beans (say one from Indonesia and another from the Americas) will yield two completely different tasting coffees, although they may share the bold, full-bodied flavor characteristics.

Dark Roast Characteristics

During the roasting process the natural sugars and starches are caramelized creating the distinctive oils that enhance the natural flavors and aroma of the dark roast coffee bean. The darker the roast, the less acidic the coffee becomes and the fuller and more pronounced the body and taste becomes. Dark roast coffee beans also have arguably less caffeine. Additional characteristics of dark roast gourmet coffee beans include:

  Bittersweet Flavor Bold Taste Smokey
  Carbon-Like Low Acidity Oily Bean

The 3 Roast Stages of Dark Roast Coffee

There are three stages or varieties of dark roast coffee beans:

Espresso Dark Roast Coffee Beans
Espresso dark roast coffee beans are dark brown and exhibit potent caramel notes.

Italian Dark Roast Coffee Beans
Italian roast coffee beans are sweeter, oilier and somewhat more potent with burnt undertones.

French Dark Roast Coffee Beans
The intense French Roast coffee beans are darker still, with more oil and a much more intense, deliciously smokey flavor.

All three of these dark roast varities deliver a bold, intense and full-bodied cup of coffee.
