Types of Coffee Roasts

Just as there are different types of coffee, there are also a variety of roasts, which have a marked effect on your java's final result. A blond and toasty light roast has high levels of acidity and caffeine, a nut brown medium roast has balanced flavor, aroma, and acidity, a dark roast is full bodied and heavy with low-caffeine content and a faintly spicy flavor, while a mahogany-colored, extra dark roast is bitter, smoky, and burnt, with the lowest caffeine of all.
