Hand-picked in the Chiapas region of Mexico, this arabica light roast coffee is roasted weekly in Dorset. Our coffee guru's chose this high grade coffee bean because of it's nutty, fruity flavours and zingy aromas.  Our House Lighter Roast is a fantastic example of why we love light roasted coffee beans. 

We're huge fans of this Mexican single origin. It's our go-to roast when we're using the batch brewer, making a pour over or using any of our manual filter brewers. Roasted until we hear the first crack, you can expect almond, berry fruit and vanilla tasting notes from the bright and zesty specialty coffee.

But what makes this the best light roast coffee ever? Mexican coffee is unique is it's flavour pallet, and well-known for being light bodied and nutty in flavour. Over 95% of the beans grown in Mexico are Arabica grown at 900 m.a.s.l or above.

Our House Lighter Roast stands out from the crowd, using a washed process to maximise the flavours. It's hand-picked at an altitude of 1750m by farmers we know by name. We only work directly with small, community-led farms to ensure the best-quality beans.

Our favourite way to brew light roast coffee is with paper filters. Paper filters are known to create a light bodied brew, as they catch most of the sediment that tends to sit at the bottom of your mug. As our House Lighter Roast has fruity undertones, it lends itself to the black coffee drinkers. We typically reach for our pour over when we're about to brew this roast, but the One Brew is a great second choice.

Is light roast coffee less acidic?

Light roast coffee is more acidic than darker roasted beans, but much less bitter. This is because the natural oils, flavours and caffeine stay locked within the bean and you'll experience much brighter, fresher flavours with light roasted coffee beans.

Is light roast coffee stronger than dark roast coffee?

Light roast coffee is stronger in caffeine content than dark roast beans. This is because light roast coffee is taken out of the roaster after the first crack, before the natural coffee oils start to break down. What this means is that your light roast coffee is stronger, but also withholds the natural flavours of that particular bean varietal. Our current House Lighter Roast is nutty in flavour and bursting with aromas, typical of single origin Arabica beans from Mexico.

Is light roast coffee more bitter?

The coffee roasting process alters the taste of the beans quite dramatically. When you light roast your coffee beans, you'll get flavours that represent that particular varietal - for example our House Lighter Roast is nutty with vanilla notes. The darker you roast your coffee, the more of the natural oils will disappear leaving you with that intense, bitter tasting coffee more typical in Italy or served as espresso.

Can I use filter ground coffee in a cafetiere?

Filter ground coffee is perfect for use when brewing a cafetiere coffee. The fine grind size allows for more coffee to be in contact with the hot water, making for a stronger, more flavoursome brew. The metal filter in the cafetiere is still fine enough to capture the grounds, delivering a clean cup of coffee. Due to the finer grind size of the coffee, it is recommended to reduce the brewing time slightly, aiming for 4 minutes instead of 6.

What is the best coffee to use for a cafetiere?

The truth is, it’s impossible to say the ‘best coffee for use in a cafetiere’ as everyone will have their own preferences on taste. Our Mexican lighter roast is our most popular coffee here at Barista & Co. With undertones of almond, berry fruit and vanilla, our house roast is best when enjoyed black, allowing the delicate flavours to deliver without compromise.

Simon J Attwood

Unreal, just buy it. Very smooth, perfect acidity, get some!

Andy Hayes

I am not keen on darker roast coffees so this has become my goto coffee. Tastes really good. Service is great. Price is reasonable, and the "Free Beans" points are worth collecting for discounts.


Very smooth.

Barry Gaston

Lovely coffee and the company is to good to deal with. No complaints whatsoever


Is Light Roast Coffee Stronger than Dark Roast?

No, light roast coffee is not stronger than dark roast in terms of caffeine content. The strength of coffee primarily comes from the amount of coffee grounds used and the brewing method, not the roast level.

The misconception that light roast coffee is stronger than dark roast often arises from the taste and flavour perception. Light roast coffee tends to have more pronounced and nuanced flavours because the beans are roasted for a shorter duration, allowing their inherent flavours to shine through. Dark roast coffee, on the other hand, has a more intense, smokey, and sometimes bitter flavour due to the longer roasting process that brings out oils and caramelisation.

However, when it comes to caffeine content, both light and dark roast coffee beans generally contain similar amounts of caffeine. The roasting process doesn't significantly alter the caffeine content of the beans. Caffeine content varies more based on factors like the type of coffee bean, its origin, and the brewing method used.

Freshly Roasted Specialty Coffee

At Barista & Co, we only use high grade, single origin coffee that we would be happy to drink ourselves. We ensure excellence when it comes to specialty coffee by working with community-driven independent farms, roasting in small batches and quality-checking every bean.

We roast our coffee fresh every Monday and Tuesday, and leave the beans to rest for 48 hours for a better tasting brew.

Did you know?

We asked 1,000 people what their favourite coffee was and they all said darker roast. However, we ran a blind taste test at Barista & Co Social. The results surprised us! Most people said they preferred Our House Lighter Roast. Why not try them both?

Just love the way the beans are roasted just for me (well there may be others in the batch) then posted to me asap. I didn’t think I’d be able to taste the difference but I can and it’s worth the little extra. Communication is also excellent to ensure the service is what I require.

Great team in the Ringwood Coffee shop/office. Always welcoming, full of enthusiasm and a real desire to share their expert knowledge of great coffee.
Thank you for the education, I can now make my perfect coffee at home, I love your single origin light roast, my personal favourite.

December 2022

Consistently good coffee beans at a very reasonable price with discounts on future purchases through the "Free Beans" system. Very close to dropping the other supplier and going all in with a Barista and Co subscription.

The postman doesn’t have to knock twice when the barista coffee arrives.

Lovey shop, great coffee and friendly and helpful staff. Took a lot of time to talk me through my coffee and coffee machine choice based on my likes, ability and budget.

When I ordered my coffee beans they kindly contacted the warehouse that day to see if my order could be added to that days roast so I didn’t have to wait a week for great coffee at home! 👍
