The Kind Of Roast Used For Breakfast Blend Coffee
"Breakfast blend" is a term used for coffee blends meant to provide an energy boost before you head out the door for the day. A light roast is often used for these products.
Light-roasted coffee beans don’t stay in a roaster for long after their “first crack,” or the popping sound the beans make when they reach a certain level of heat.
This process prevents a dark and intense flavor, making light roast coffee perfect for milk and creamers, with a subtle sweetness combined with notes of fruit and flowers.
The coffee's mild flavor also makes it an excellent accompaniment to breakfast pastries, parfaits, fruit bowls, oatmeal, and savory items like egg sandwiches and omelets.
On a scoop-by-scoop basis, lighter roasts tend to have a higher caffeine content than darker roasts. This provides more of a lift to get you to start your day.
