The medium roast is the perfect halfway point between light roasts and dark roasts. Lightly brown in color, medium roasted beans have no oil on the surface. They are characterized by a denser body than light roasts, without the stronger, chocolatey flavor of dark roasts.
Medium roast beans are roasted until they begin to caramelize. They may display some oil on the surface, but do not get as shiny as dark roasted beans. The longer roasting time allows the beans time to expand and develop the intense aromas and flavors that make this roast so popular.
