A perfect coffee cup results from a series of personal choices. However, there is a technical side to it as well. One should consider grind size, brewing time, water temperature, and measurements 


While reading our suggestions, you shall remember that coffee taste is subjective. Therefore, don't be afraid to experiment. However, there are few tips that can help you when choosing your coffee roast. 

The coffee roast can significantly affect your brewing method, and the coffee type can be chosen whether you use milk in coffee or not. Beans for espresso machines are basically roasted darker than beans for filter coffee. If you brew espresso on lightly roasted beans, it can give a taste that may not be completely balanced in terms of acidity, sweetness, and bitterness.

If you use very dark-roasted beans for your pour-over coffee, it will give a strong and more bitter taste. Whether you should use light or dark roasted coffee beans thus depends on your taste preferences.That means that the way your beans are roasted means a lot to the taste of your coffee.

Light Roast

Light roast coffee has more acidity than darker roasts and is usually used for pourovers, like Hario, Chemex, and AeroPress. It can also be used for standard filter coffee.

Medium Roast

Medium roast coffee has more sweetness and body than light roasts. It is mostly used for espresso machines and French press, but it can also be used for pour over.

Dark Roast

Dark roast means the beans are roasted for a longer time, and this roast type has well-balanced bitterness and more body. It is normally used for espresso machines, French press, and filter coffee.
