Learning The Secrets About Coffee

The Elements in Coffee Roasting Coffee is a brewed drink, which is loved all over the world and in time memorial for its flavorful aroma, which is produced from drying and roasting green coffee beans. When roasting the green coffee beans, the gradual building up of heat helps in causing chemical changes to take place in the beans, such that when the desired temperature is reached, the beans are in a roasted appearance and a roasted aroma is emitted which is uniquely characteristic of coffee. Levels of organic compounds, such as amino acids, protein, sugars and caffeine, a stimulant which is linked with the central nervous system, are contained in green coffee beans and when these beans are roasted a chemical reaction takes place, which is known as the Maillard reaction, which is a chemical reaction between amino acids and sugars, and this reaction produces brown, roasted beans that possess a distinct aroma and flavor. It takes years of trials and errors to perfectly roast green coffee beans into good, quality coffee. Only coffee masters know how to produce the four categories of roasted coffee – light, medium, medium-dark, and dark. All categories give that aromatic smell but the flavor of each differs.

Sound is a good indicator of the roasting temperature, such that there are two temperatures to watch during roasting, which produce a distinct sound in each, – temperature at 196 degrees Centigrade which emits the first crack sound, marking the beginning of a light roast coffee, and at 224 degrees Centigrade, which emits the second crack.

The characteristics of light roast coffee are light brown color, mild taste, and no visible oil present on the coffee, a result of not too long of roasting so that the inherent oils in the beans have not surfaced out.

The characteristics of medium roast coffee are medium brown, has a stronger flavor than light roast coffee and, still, non-oily. Their special names come as City Coffee, American Coffee, and Breakfast Coffee. The characteristics of medium dark roast coffee are rich, dark color, slightly oily, and having a bittersweet aftertaste. Medium dark roast coffee is also referred to as Full City coffee. These are the distinct characteristics of dark roast coffee – shiny due to the oil that comes out during roasting, has a bitter taste, less acidity and slightly dark to charred color. These are the popular names of dark roast coffee beans – High, Continental, New Orleans, European, Espresso, Viennese, Italian, and French.
