The longer and darker you roast coffee, the more of the natural oils escape from the bean leaving you with a bready, bitter flavour you expect from Italian coffee. While this pairs very well with milk and is perfect for a latte or cappuccino, we'd always recommend light roast coffee to black filter lovers.
Light roast coffee may benefit those who prefer black filter coffee as it generally contains more caffeine, has more distinct flavour notes, is less bitter, and has higher levels of chlorogenic acid. All in all, this type of coffee often has more berry, stone fruit and sweet vanilla tasting notes.
