Light Medium Roast Coffees have, in recent years, become increasingly popular. This is for many reasons, but perhaps mostly because lighter roasts preserve the unique characteristics of the bean.
Those who choose this type can expect flavour notes most reminiscent of the Coffee’s original taste before roasting. Often, they consist of a light brown colour, with no oil on the surface of the beans. When brewed, they most commonly boast a mellow body with crisp acidity.
So other than that, why should you buy Light Medium Roast Coffee Beans over any other type? What else makes them so special, so unique? Let’s start at the beginning with the roasting stage itself.
Coffee beans pop, crack and expand when subjected to heats between 350 °F – 400 °F, a phenomenon known as the “first crack”. As a rule of thumb, lighter roasts are seldom roasted beyond the first crack. This ultimately has a significant influence on your morning cuppa.
