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, producing a light bodied, higher acidity flavor.

  • Cinnamon


Medium roasts

This roast is medium brown in color with a stronger flavor and higher body, and a non-oily surface. It’s often referred to as the American roast because it is generally preferred in the United States.
