Topic: My taste is changing (4 msgs / 77 lines)
1) From: Ebeneneezer Shay
The strangest thing is happening to me, as I get into roasting I am
finding that I actually prefer a lighter roast vs. a darker one now.
When I purchased roasted beans I was partial to the darker roasts that
were available. I am not sure why this shocks me really, I would
assume that freshness plays a large role in truly great coffee I guess
I did not think it would be such a dramatic role.
Three cheers to french roast reform, lol

Welcome to the club. I think most of us who have been roasting a while have 
the same experience.

The lighter roasts let you get to know the varietal profile of the
bean and you can really enjoy and get to know the indivdiual
varieties.
I think most commercially roasted coffee is roasted darker to help
cover the staleness of the beans.  I recently bought some American
roasted beans at a store, thinking "Oh a company that knows their
roasts.  This is promising."  Wrong.  The staleness of the beans and
the bagginess were very noticeable.
So, homeroasted dark is still different than commercial dark roasted,
but you really are getting the roast profile of a fresh bean.
