PopQuizzical Daily! for May 31, 2013:
In the movie Glengarry Glen Ross, Alec Baldwin tells Jack Lemmon that “Coffee is for…” who?
The darkest coffee bean roast is the Spanish roast. The French or espresso roast is pretty dark, but if you’re looking for much of the coffee beans inherent flavor to be left behind, you’re barking up the wrong coffee bush. Once you get to French roast, then on into the Italian roast and finally the Spanish roast – most of the coffee bean’s natural flavor is gone. It’s been replaced by tiny screams while burning in a roaster. If you want to taste more of the natural coffee flavors, try an American roast or a City roast. Those two roast at lower temperatures and will yield more coffee flavors, but will be a bit more acidic. Enjoy!
