Roasting is a heat process that turns coffee into the fragrant, dark brown beans with which we are most familiar.

Light Roasts
Light brown in color. This roast is generally preferred for milder coffee varieties. There will be no oil on the surface of these beans, because they are not roasted long enough for the oils to break through to the surface.
Medium Roasts
Medium brown in color with a stronger flavor,  and a non-oily surface. This roast is often referred to as the American roast because it is generally preferred in the United States.
Medium—Dark Roasts
Rich, dark color with some oil on the surface and with a slight bittersweet aftertaste.
Dark Roasts
Shiny black beans with a oily surface and a pronounced bitterness. The darker the roast, the less acidity will be found in the coffee beverage. Dark roast coffees run from slightly dark to charred and the names are often used interchangeably which can be very confusing.  Be sure to check your beans before you buy them!
