What is Light, Medium, Dark Roasted Coffee?
Did you realize some coffees taste different from others? You may notice coffee tastes are different in every coffeehouse you visit. Some coffees are fruity and silky, some coffees are deep and dark. Did you know what caused this?
It's all about how your coffee beans were roasted. Let's say you liked the coffee you drank in coffeehouses and you wanted to buy some beans or ground coffee and brew it, or you want to order online from your favorite coffee bean.
We have compiled for you what you need to pay attention to. So, what's the difference between dark, medium, and light roasted coffee?
Light Roasted Coffee
We need to talk about green coffee before light roasted coffee. Green Coffee is unroasted coffee to straight from the origin. Light roasted coffee sees less heat. Light roasts are light brown in color. They have no oil on the bean surfaces.
Light roast beans are denser than dark roast beans.Light roast coffee is generally the most bright and acidic (“acid,” but not actually chemically acidic). It also has the lightest body. It can sometimes have a floral or sweet aroma.
Medium Roasted Coffee
Medium roast coffee is a brown color. These coffees have medium acidity and body. Medium roasted coffee has a balanced flavor with an increased body and a more rounded aroma. They have rarely oil on the bean surfaces. There's less caffeine than light roasted coffee, but still more caffeine than in darker roasts.
Dark Roasted Coffee
Dark roast coffee is the most aromatic. It usually has more chocolaty, caramel notes with roast attributes and a full body. Dark roasted coffees are dark brown in color. They have an oily form. The coffee will generally have a bitter and smoky or even burnt taste. The amount of caffeine is substantially decreased.
- You may prefer a lighter roast in the morning and a darker one later in the day.
- You need to store your cores in a dry and cool place. At this point, it is important that the interior of the package you buy will be aluminum laminated and there is a one-sided valve on the package to ensure the flow of CO2 out.
- It is important that you take your coffee as a bean, but if you are grinding your fresh coffee beans, make sure the grinding size is correct.
- Ask for the suitability of the fresh bean you bought for the brewing equipment.
