Light

Extremely light, floral, and sweet.

What you truly love is Earl Grey tea with four lumps of sugar. But sometimes you need real caffeine.

New England

New England is still quite light and acidic. It may also have a slightly grainy texture.

You’ve abandoned tea. Coffee is your life now, and you only think about tea when you’re alone on rainy nights.

Richer than light roasts, but without the smokiness and heaviness that comes with a darker roast.

City

City will taste more bitter than acidic. You’ll get more of the flavor of the bean itself, rather than the roast.

You’ve toyed with the idea of a dark roast. You’d never actually do it, but that doesn’t mean you haven’t thought about it.

Full City

Somewhere between medium and dark. The acidity is almost completely gone — this will taste heavier and more bitter than City.

You might as well accept the fact that you’re on the fast-track to the dark side of the roast spectrum.

Dark, intense, and bittersweet. It is one of the most popular dark roasts, and is sometimes used in espresso drinks.

You’ll probably sip this to the strains of “Deep Dark Indie Folk” on Spotify.

The taste falls somewhere between bittersweet and charred, and serves as an excellent espresso.

You’re definitely the strong and silent type, so we won’t talk much. Enjoy your roast.
