How To Determine The Best Roasted Coffee

The Australian public has developed a refined taste for coffee. Gone are the days of what could be called “brown water” disguised as coffee. Australians like coffee flavorful and strong.  We drink it the way that it has always been meant to be consumedRoasted coffee comes in many varieties – light, medium, dark, very dark, and extra dark – making it hard to determine which one is best.   Roasted Coffee

The quality of roasted coffee depends on the aroma, acidity, texture, flavor, and aftertaste. These, in turn, are the result of the methods used to roast the coffee and the degree of desiccation. For instance, light coffee roasted quickly and at a high temperature can taste grainy and baked whereas overly dark roasted coffee heated slowly at lower temperatures can taste burnt.

Our sense of smell, taste, and sight can help us discern the quality of roasted coffee. The best roasted coffee is a balance between aroma, acidity, texture, flavor, and aftertaste. The aroma of roasted coffee gives us an idea of its degree of bitterness and strength. Conversely, the acidity level determines the strength of its flavor. A dry, subtle acidity brings the flavor to life while no acidity makes it dull and lifeless. We would probably reject it the second it touches our tongue. The darkest coffees are less acidic (e.g., Peru’s, Sumatra’s, and Kenya’s). The texture of the roasted coffee renders it potent and enduring. It tends to increase with the darkness of roast until it reaches its peak at approximately medium-dark. All these characteristics are affected by the methodology used to heat the coffee beans, the amount of moisture removed, and how much oil is left on the surface.

The flavor of roasted coffee can be settled, intricate, deep, fresh, coarse, or even. If it is defective, it will be lush or fermented. The best roasted coffee should be served in quality takeaway cups.Coffee

In Europe, Asia, and Latin America most people prefer their roasted coffee very dark. Instead, American roast (medium brown) is the preferred coffee roast in the United States. However, even the best coffee beans can be ruined with bad roasting practices regardless of their origin.

Therefore, choosing the best roasted coffee is not easy and mostly a matter of personal taste, culture, and roasting methodology.
