Darker is not stronger

Did you know that it is a misconception to think that Darker roast is stronger than a light roast?  In reality, Darker roast beans are cooked longer and they lose all of the oils and they loose that great thing that makes coffee taste good.   

A few notes to keep in mind.

  • By volume, there's more caffeine in light roast coffee than in dark roast coffee.
  • This is because dark roast coffee beans have been roasted for longer and often become over roasted or even burnt.
  • When coffee beans are burnt they lose attributes like flavor and caffeine content.
