Coffee Bean Roasting Process
Dark Roasts (14 minutes) - The coffee seeds are almost jet black giving it a smoky well roasted taste that hides the natural flavor of coffee.
Medium - (12 to 13 minutes) examples include
► French Roast – this roast beans are often used to make espresso.
► Continental Roast - is slightly lighter than French Roast but has spicy body.
► Viennese Roast - roasted a little longer and has a rich chocolaty body.
► Breakfast Roast - a bit sweeter than a light roast.
► American Roast – has good aroma and not as dark as European roasts.
Light Roasts (7 minutes) - If you want a light flavored coffee the light roast can provide you with this pleasure. Some examples of light roasts include –
► Cinnamon Roast - No oil leaks out on the seed and the flavor is light -bodied.
► New England Roast.
