Lively & Light:

Coffees in this category fall at the light end of the roast scale. Known as 'city' or cinnamon roast, roasting stops somewhere between 1st pop and just before 2nd pop. Combining this roast style with coffee from regions known for bright acid makes a bright and snappy cup of coffee. If you like milk chocolate, cream & pale ales, or wine coolers, this is your coffee category.

Mellow and Mild:

Coffees in this category fall at the center of the roast scale. Known as 'full  city' roast, roasting stops around 2nd pop. Combining this roast style with coffee from regions known for balanced acid and body lends its self to a smooth cup of coffee.  If you like semi sweet chocolate, lagers, brown/red ales, blush or Piesporter wines, this is your category.

Big and Bold:

Coffees in this category fall at the darker end of the roast scale. Known as 'full', 'dark' or 'continental' roast, roasting goes beyond 2nd pop. Combining this roast style with coffee from regions known for big body makes a 'stout' or bold cup of coffee.
