Light Roast Coffee

Light roast coffee makes up the majority of the whole bean coffee reviews I do here at The Coffee Concierge, mostly because I find that it’s much easier to detect the coffee’s nuances when roasted less.

Additionally, many Specialty Coffee roasters these days don’t even roast towards a dark level. So light roast availability is definitely at an all-time high.

All of the light roast coffee that I’ve reviewed so far can be found right here.
