Medium Roast coffee has a brown color that is a little darker than light roast. However, just like light roast, it does not have any oil on the surface of the beans. Instead of having delicate flavors, medium roast has a more balanced flavor, aroma, and acidity between dark and light roasts.
Medium Roasts can also be left to roast a little longer to be considered Medium-Dark. This roast is much richer and darker in color, with oils starting to surface the beans. These levels of roasting preserve the unique flavors of the coffee and is a great balance between acidity and body.
