Coffee snobs are a dime a dozen, but they all have one thing in common: they prefer their coffee to be roasted dark. But while these java purists may think that they are doing their taste buds a favor by drinking beans that have been roasted to an oily black color, they may actually be missing out by not trying medium roast coffee. The great thing about medium roast coffee is that it is never bitter or harsh. This makes it easier for most people to enjoy, even if they are new to enjoying coffee. In fact, it is the world’s most popular roast: you’re probably drinking it right now!
The difference between medium and dark roast coffee beans is that medium roast coffee beans have been roasted for a shorter amount of time. This gives the coffee bean a medium color. Medium roast coffee is generally regarded as having a fuller-bodied flavor than darker roasts and a sweeter, more caramel-like flavor.
The world of coffee can be a confusing. The coffee bean is roasted at different temperatures to bring out different flavors. Some people say that darker roasts are stronger, while others swear they can taste the difference between a light and dark roast. (But what do they all taste like?) The answer is that, while beans of different roasts may have different flavors, each roast tastes more or less the same. (I like my coffee slightly darker, though.)
Hashtag is a medium to slightly dark roast. Enjoy !
