We roast Espresso roasts a little longer than our Light & Filter roast coffees. We also roast it a little hotter to increase the body and decrease the acidity. The same coffee can taste very different with small changes in roasting. Medium roast coffee is widely available from coffee roaster in Malaysia.
Medium roast coffee is a brown color and rarely has an oily surface. These coffees have a medium acidity and body, as well as a rounded flavor profile. With a medium roast, you’ll be more able to taste the distinct characteristics of whatever type of coffee bean that you use to make your coffee.
In Summary, Espresso Roast:
- Roasting is slightly hotter and for a longer period of time
- Easier to dissolve the right amount of coffee into the water because it’s roasted to be more soluble.
- The increased solubility helps the extraction to push past sourness (under-extraction) into properly extracted coffee which tastes much sweeter and balanced
- Can brew as a espresso or sometimes for filter coffee depending on your preference. The espresso roasts are great for people looking for more body and less acidity in their regular coffee.
