Light roasts have a light brown tone, with a light body and no oil on the outside of the bean. Light roasts have a toasted grain taste and pronounced acidity. The origin flavors of the bean are retained to a greater extent than in darker roasted coffees.
Medium roasted beans are medium brown in color with a heavier body than light roasts. Like light roasts, they have no oil on the outside of the beans. Medium roasts are often very well balanced in body, flavor, aroma and acidity.
Dark roasted beans are dark
brown or sometimes almost black. They often have a layer of oil on the outside, which is also seen in the cup after brewing. In a typical dark roast, one would taste more of the roasting process than the bean.
why we roast
At Martini Coffee Roasters, we roast in small batches, made to order, to bring our customers the freshest coffee of their choosing. We hope our coffee is the positive start to your day and helps you make it through to the end.
I have been using Martini coffee for awhile now. I like their Costa Rican blend as well as the Ethiopian. The flavor just jumps out at you.
"This Ethiopian coffee is my favorite way to kick start my mornings! Great fresh roast taste and no bitterness. I appreciate the artisanal purity. I see they have other varieties on the company website and hope they add more here too!"
