Billions of cups of coffee are consumed every day according to the British Coffee Association.

Of course, many consumers aren’t aware of what they’re actually drinking. The complexity of coffee culture today is greater than the understanding of the universe. Tamping, grind size and caffeine content are just a few of the variables that make up a cup coffee.

We are here to help you sort through the chaos and make it as simple as possible. This blog post will discuss the debate over coffee strength and coffee roast.

But which roast has the most caffeine?

It’s obvious that the coffee beans will be stronger the longer they are roasted. You would be wrong. It is actually the opposite: Lighter-roasted coffee beans have more flavor and caffeine.

This is because traditional coffee, first- and second-wave, is often misinterpreted. Traditional coffee is known for stronger flavors such as toast, charcoal and general burnt-ness. These flavors can overwhelm the palate and cause novice coffee drinkers often to throw it out.

It’s like toast. It is hard to eat burnt toast. It is more crumbly and dryer, and can cause us to cough up breadcrumbs. The toasted bread that is lighter has more of the ‘bread flavors’. It is more delicious and retains more of its original substance.

This is also true for coffee beans. Roasting beans darker removes the actual flavor and gives them a generalized taste that is more bitter. It isn’t stronger coffee.

Light roast coffee tastes stronger than.

Lighter roast coffee is better on all counts. Fresh beans that have been roasted earlier will be more flavorful. This depends on many factors, including the bean type, region and processing method.

Specialty coffees are often roasted lighter and contain a variety flavors such as honey, berries, nuts, and oats.

A coffee bean loses 90% of its water content when it is roasted. Light roast coffee retains more nutrients and minerals, such as caffeine, than dark roast coffee.

A burned chicken breast will lose most of its vitamins, nutrients. The essential oils and minerals in dark roast coffee will be gone.

Coffee is made by brewing and not roasting

Yes, coffee roasted as dark as night will lose some of its original flavor and caffeine content. You’ll still get flavors and it will still be strong when brewed.

The roasting of the beans is not what makes a strong coffee. It all comes down to the brewing ratios. You can dilute the coffee’s flavor by adding too much water to the grinds. It will taste like dirty water. Too much water will cause you to chew the coffee for hours.

Coffee strength can be determined by how your coffee is brewed and not how your beans are roasted. You can have coffee that is as strong as you want.
