Light Roast vs. Dark Roast: Why Summer Swells is a Light Roast

As the heat of summer sets in, what could be better than a refreshing cup of light roast coffee? Our latest seasonal offering, Summer Swells, brings you just that - a delightful light roast with fruity flavor notes perfect for the sunny season. But why light roast, you may ask? Let's delve into the captivating world of coffee roasting and discover why we chose a light roast for our summer special.

When it comes to roasting, the level can greatly influence a coffee's flavor profile. Dark roasts are typically bold, full-bodied, and rich, with notes of chocolate and nuts, while light roasts lean towards a more delicate, brighter profile with pronounced fruity and floral notes. 

Choosing a light roast for Summer Swells was a conscious decision aimed at creating a coffee blend that captures the essence of summer. Originating from Costa Rica, a region known for its outstanding light roast coffees, Summer Swells showcases a delightful balance of fruity notes akin to ripe peaches, juicy pineapples, and a hint of citrus, making each sip as refreshing as a cool summer breeze.

Furthermore, light roasts tend to retain more of the coffee's original characteristics, allowing the unique qualities of the Costa Rican beans and the honey processing method to shine through. The result is a coffee that is bright, flavorful, and carries a subtle sweetness, offering a unique taste experience that's perfect for hot summer days.

But the appeal of Summer Swells isn't limited to its light roast alone. This coffee is versatile enough to be enjoyed in any form - hot or cold. Be it a comforting hot brew for your mornings or a refreshing cold brew for those scorching afternoons, Summer Swells proves to be an exceptional choice.
