A dark roasted bean will deliver a rich, powerful flavour which may be bitter in some cases. A dark roast gives exactly the same dose of caffeine as a lightly roasted bean.
Roasts are determined by what are referred to as 'cracks'. Basically the more cracks a bean has in its outer shell, the darker the drink is said to be. When the coffee cherry is picked, the bean in the center is green, tasteless, and soft. Roasting is the key to flavour.
As the bean roasts, it will harden. Our darker roast beans are only removed from the roasters after they reach their first or even second crack. Just to complicate things, it can depend on the source and type of bean (Arabica or Robusta) as to when that first crack happens!
