Did you ever think an omelet could be made without eggs? Of course not! Neither can the coffee be made without THE BEANS! A lot of people drink coffee but do not know how it is made or what it is made of. The secret to every great cup of coffee owes it greatness to the seeds, hence, ‘it’s all about that bean’!
Commercially speaking, there are two types of coffee: Arabica and Robusta. The Arabica produces better quality coffee and is more expensive than the Robusta, which is generally easier to grow. You can also enjoy a combination of the two because they both will give you a certain drinking excitement.
THERE ARE THREE MAJOR TYPES OF ROASTS:
☕ Light Roast: This type of roast usually makes the beans look pale and dry as it is the first stage of roasting. It usually has a smoothly flavored profile that may come in a variety. Using the light roast coffee beans to brew your coffee means there is more acidity in your drink and there are minimal traces of the roasting process.
☕ Medium Roast: This type of roast also looks dry but possesses more sweetness due to its additional sweltering. It has a more pronounced bitterness with fruity aromatics. The beans are medium brown, and its flavors are more compressed.
☕ Dark Roast: This roast is also known as the full roast. Unlike the other types, the beans are usually oily and tend to have a stronger and thicker taste. The roasted flavor is also pronounced.
WHERE TO BUY THE BEST COFFEE BEANS
Once you have successfully discovered the type of roast you prefer for your coffee, you should also know that the quality of your beans determines how awesome your brew will turn out.
It is BEST to buy your coffee beans from local coffee roasters because those will give a fresh feel to your drink.
The coffee beans sold at supermarkets usually do not brew as well as ones gotten from roasters because they have been exposed on the shelves for long and they tend to lose quality with time.
To get freshly roasted beans, you should look for the closely situated coffee roasters to you to have easy access to your fresh brews at any time you desire. However, if you have to buy from grocery stores because there are no local roasters close by, make sure to purchase products with actual roast dates printed on the packaging. The dates should not exceed 14 days after roasting as coffee tends to lose its taste and quality any time after that.
