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.

What is Medium Roast Coffee?

In simple terms, “medium roast” coffee refers to the degree of roast. It is also called “American” roast, continental roast, or regular roast. Medium roast coffee is called Medium roast because it is the middle roast level that coffee beans can be roasted. At this level the coffee bean will be partially cooked and the level of acidity and oils will be in the middle. If the coffee beans are roasted longer the beans will turn into a darker roast level called “dark roast”. Dark roasted coffee beans will have a higher level of acidity and oils. At a light roast level the beans will be fully cooked and have a low level of acidity and oils.
