Coffee bean roast levels have become much of a thing now. True coffee addicts are always aware of their roast level. And, if you aren’t yet, no worries, it’s just not you. Many get confused with roast levels. We are here to simplify your types and level of coffee bean roast.
Knowing your roast level is important to adjust your morning cup of joe without feeling weighty.
The level of coffee roast signifies the amount of caffeine in it. Also, the caffeine level or roast level can be assumed by its color. Let us now help you with the different types of coffee roasts to help you make your perfect choice. There are generally four types of coffee roasts- each one is slightly different in appearance and possesses unique taste notes.
The degree to which coffee is roasted decides the taste in your cup. Raw or unprocessed coffee beans are soft, unscented, and green in color. It is the roasting process that makes us relish aromatic, toasty, and crunchy beans.
Light Roast Coffee Beans
They are light brown and are well toasted, light in weight, and have high acidic notes. In the light roast process, a little time is required to bring beans to perfect light flavor. The temperature is generally kept between 180°C and 205°C. At its extreme temperature, i.e., at 205°C, coffee beans create their first crack. It means the moisture in beans evaporates, and due to an increase in pressure, beans begin to pop out. After the first crack(term famous used in the coffee industry), the roasting process is put off the right of the bat.

Medium Roast Coffee Beans
They are somewhat browny in texture and seem round in shape. Also, medium roast coffee beans have low acid notes and give a sweet flavor to energize you for the whole new day. The brown color in the medium roast is caused due to natural caramelization of the coffee beans. The medium coffee beans are usually roasted between 210°C and 224°C. However, this temperature may vary from one region to another, as per people’s preferences.
Medium roast coffees are smaller than lightly roasted coffee beans due to their longer roasting time. Prolong heat makes the bean lose its moisture by 13 percent more than the lightly roasted process. This extra roasting makes coffee sweet and low acidic in flavor.
