COFFEE ROASTS

VARYING DEGREE OF COFFEE ROASTS

 

Roasting coffee beans is a methodical process that greatly affects the quality of the drink. Depending on the desired characteristics, beans are roasted in different grades to create varied tastes, body, and acidity.

 

Light Roast

Light roast beans are light brown in color with no oily shine on the surface. They retain their caffeine more and their characteristic flavors. They taste grainy and are more acidic than deeper roasts.

 

Coffee beans pop and crack at about 205°C. This is a threshold mark called the “first crack.” Light roast beans are roasted just before the first crack.


Medium Roast

Medium roast is medium brown in color, still with no oil on the surface. They are still acidic but with less pronounced acidity. There is a more balanced, flavor, aroma, and acidity but with less caffeine.

 

Medium roasting is from the beginning of the first crack (210°C) until just before the second crack (220°C).

 

Medium-Dark Roast

Medium dark roast is darker brown in color. Oil may be noticeable in the surface. Although the balance is no longer there with the body becoming more pronounced, the characteristic flavors and aromas become more evident here. There is also the hint of spiciness in the taste.

 

Dark Roast

The beans are dark brown to almost black. The surface of the bean shows an oily shine. There is considerably less caffeine, the taste is tarry or burnt, and the body is thin. Roasting is up to 250°C

Looking for gourmet desserts shouldn’t be that hard. Just like this very simple recipe that we found. This is a totally new way of enjoying two of our favorites, coffee and chocolates. Warning! This could taste heavenly and be extremely addicting.

Admit it. We all like to indulge every once in a while on something soft, sweet and rich. Now, this coffee fudge is something you should definitely try. This could be a simple yet very nice treat for somebody who loves coffee and chocolates. You can enjoy these little munchkins on your own. If you’re feeling generous, share them with friends or put them in some nice packaging as gifts. Follow these very easy steps to create your own dessert. In fact, you can put your own twist to it, like by adding berries or nuts to your concoction!
