    Ligher roasted coffees (like breakfast blend) feature more acidity than darker roasts

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Lighter roasted coffees tend to have more acidity compared to darker roasts. This is because during the roasting process, the longer the coffee beans are roasted, the more the acidity is reduced. Lighter roasts are typically roasted for a shorter duration, which allows the natural acidity of the beans to be more pronounced. On the other hand, darker roasts are roasted for a longer time, resulting in a smoother and less acidic flavor profile. Therefore, it is true that lighter roasted coffees, such as breakfast blend, feature more acidity than darker roasts.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Darker roasts are known to have more body and flavor compared to lighter roasts. This is because the longer roasting process enhances the characteristics of the coffee beans, resulting in a bolder and more pronounced taste. The higher temperatures during dark roasting also lead to the caramelization of sugars, giving the coffee a richer and more robust flavor profile. Therefore, it is true that darker roasts feature more body and flavor than lighter roasts.
