Regarding this, is Espresso light or dark roast?
Espresso Isn't a Coffee Roast or Varietyof Coffee Bean. Everyone knows Espresso is coffee's strongcousin, but it has nothing to do with the roast or the beanitself. Espresso gets its strength from the brewing process.It can be brewed with light, medium or dark roastedcoffee.
Likewise, how is Espresso Roast different? Espresso roasts are roasted a littlelonger and a little hotter to increase the body and decrease theacidity. The same coffee can taste very different with smallchanges in roasting and we dial in an espresso roastfor the espresso machine.
Considering this, can I use dark roast for espresso?
Coffee beans that are roasted for longerperiods of time are less dense, but are still larger thancoffee beans that haven't been roast as long.Labelling coffee beans as "espresso" generally hintsat a darker roast, and thus, a bolder flavor than light andmedium roast beans.
