Coffee Beans have a grading system just like a fine wine. There are so many levels to the grading and certain conditions must be met to classify types of beans. Different countries have variations on their ratings, but most will follow standard grading scales. Explanations of these categories will be explained below.
Types of Roasts
There are several types of roasts that you should be aware of when determining what type of coffee you should select. Once we have determined the perfect origin and grade of coffee bean, we study and test to determine the type of roasting that best complements the bean and will hopefully appeal to your taste.
Light Roasts – These roasts are light brown in color, no oil on the surface and they have a fruity taste. This roast has the most caffeine and the highest acidity.
