Medium Roast Coffee: It’s all about balance
Our coffee beans will roast until their internal temperatures reach between 400 and 430 degrees Fahrenheit. This heats them up past the first crack but maintains their temperature so they don’t reach the second. They begin to release some of their natural oils and lose the acidity that is usually found in light roast coffees.
This coffee roasting process creates more balanced flavor profiles of sweet milk chocolate, rich caramel, decadent vanilla, or buttery walnuts. The oils that release from the beans give medium roasts more of a full-bodied texture compared to lighter roasts — but they still aren’t quite as thick as dark roasts.
Because medium roasts are so well-rounded, it makes them the top pick for everything from flavored coffee to cold brew. Whether you prefer whole bean or pre-ground coffee, you’ll see why these versatile roasts are appreciated by all coffee lovers.
