The age old debate: Which roast is best?
Dark roast is the best. No, light roast is the best.
Should we meet in the middle and say the best is a medium roast?
Describing coffee roast levels is standard…
The color of the roasted beans vary from light to medium to dark.
When roasting, as the coffee beans absorb heat, their color becomes darker and the flavor profile changes.
Roast level preferences however,
are up to you. Let’s take a look at your options.
Higher Acidity, Bright Notes, Mellow Body
Medium/light roasts complement the coffee beans’ natural flavors and aromas. For a high quality specialty bean, you’re going to find a lighter roast showcases the natural flavors nicely.
Now that’s what I’m talking about!

Smooth, Round, Caramelized Flavor
Still preserving the coffee’s natural aromas and flavors, a sweet caramel sweetness will replace the brightness and acidity of the lighter roast. Can also be referred to as City or American roast.
Sound like your cup of tea? (Or coffee rather!)
Roasty, Rich and Smooth
Providing a deeper and darker flavor.
Perfect for a balanced espresso.
Perfectly balanced blend of flavors sound perfect for you?
Rich Flavor, Less Acidity, Heavier Body
Pulling out more chocolate or nutty flavor notes. You’re looking at more of a French type flavor. Often called Full City or Vienna as well.
Sounds like what you’ve been dreaming of?
