Assessment: A mild and neutral low acid coffee bean. Aroma is light and has a hint of toasted barley. Its full body and mild neutral taste makes it one of the more delicate coffees.
Light to Medium depending on preference. Wheelin Pete’s prefers it light unless you are using it as an Espresso base.
Light Roasts (Cinnamon, Half City, Light, New England) The bean is light brown and dry with no visible oils on the surface of the bean. The flavor is baked or bread-like, similar to toasted grain. Depending on the coffee, some sour tones may be present and the body of the coffee will be minimal. New England roast (not very common) and Scandinavian are a little darker than Cinnamon roast.
Medium Roasts (American, Breakfast, Brown, City, Medium) medium light brown beans. The American roast is the lightest medium roast and the most common roast used for cupping and professional coffee tasting. An official Medium or City roast (more common in the Western U.S.) is slightly darker than American (more common in the Eastern and southern U.S.), and is an excellent choice for tasting the differences between most varietals.
