Many Arabica coffee varieties show off their full flavor profiles when roasted to a lower temperature.  A lower final roasting temp, along with a flatter roasting profile, allows the oils inside the beans to gently 'mature' and bring out delicate floral and fruit notes in the resultant coffee.  In addition, less caffeine is lost which delivers a higher caffeine punch in each cup of coffee.

Sometimes referred to as a 'blond' roast, light roast coffee can make even less remarkable coffee varieties drink above their weight.  Subtle flavors are enhanced, especially on the flavor receptors on the front of the tongue.  Acid bitterness can be converted into a 'bright' taste that is not unpleasant.  

For the most part, coffee grows in a tropical environments with nutrient rich soil, hot temperatures, and humid air. Obviously much like wine, variants in these micro-climates will have a huge impact on the chemical makeup and flavor of the green coffee beans. Coffee growing regions at a low altitude with more sunlight and volcanic rich soil like Indonesia will have more savory coffee profile with nutty overtones. High altitude regions with more rainfall like much of Central and South America will have more acidic compounds, giving you a floral, fruity bean. 

The Roast Profile

The roast has an huge impact on the flavor of the beans. Roasting cooks the beans, and changes the chemical composition of the beans. Dark roasts have always been more popular because they’re easier to make and a dark roast can hide imperfections in the green beans. The roasting process breaks down the acids and caramelizes the sugars, giving you that signature bold, toasty flavor. A proper ight roast will enhance the fruity, floral flavors of the coffee, resulting in a perfect cup that is bright, pungent, and citrusy.

The Brewing Method Used

Critical to the flavor of your coffee is the brewing method.  Different brew methods can extract far different aromatics and oils from your coffee beans. Brewing factors like water temperature and taste and grind size (which affects the surface area of the ground coffee) will all change the flavor of your morning brew. French press (coarse grind) will have little surface area with more brew time, while espresso (fine grind) has a lot of surface area with little brew time, creating many different flavor profiles. 

 

How Different Coffee Roasts Taste

When you’re trying to find the best tasting coffee, roasts along with variety, greatly effect your decision. It’s largely personal preference, and you’ll want to understand the differences with each roast profile. Branch out and try something new, because you can find great examples of the brewers art with any roast profile.
