The Dark Roast*
Once beyond the middle roast, beans make a dramatic transformation. The surface of the bean glistens with an even coat of oils. The color darkens to a burnt umber (French Roast), eventually a true black (Italian Roast). Carmelization and carbonization create a flavor that is unmistakably “dark.” It is a myth, however, that a dark-roasted coffee is stronger than light-roasted. It is the amount of the coffee used in brewing that affects the coffee’s potency. The flavor of a dark roast is not subtle and is often an acquired taste.
