October 8, 2004, Newsletter Issue #22: Dark Roast or Medium?

Tip of the Week


The amount of time that a coffee bean is roasted plays a huge part in the flavor of the final cup. Medium Roast coffees produce a milder tasting cup of coffee; Dark Roast a stronger brew. So it really depends on what taste strength you prefer. As a general rule the medium roast is the more popular, although some coffee lovers prefer the stronger taste of the darker roasts.

But keep in mind, the darkness of the roast is not the only factor in how `strong` your coffee tastes. The country of origin plays a part as well.
