It’s essential to consider the roast colour when you’re choosing your coffee, since it greatly influences the taste of the brew. The lighter the roast, the milder the coffee flavour. On the other hand, the darker the coffee roast, the more intense it will be. Medium roasts provide a balanced taste with slightly sweet notes.
As you can see, each type of coffee roasting profile comes with its own distinctive flavours and aromas. If you prefer full-bodied coffee with a rich taste and no bitterness, you’ll love our dark roast coffees. The new Van Houtte® House Blend Dark offers a unique flavour profile that’s bold while being pleasant on the palate.
