Does the roast matter?
Roasting coffee transforms the chemical and physical properties of green coffee beans into roasted coffee products. The roasting process is what produces the characteristic flavour of coffee by causing the green coffee beans to expand and to change in colour, taste, smell, and density. Unroasted beans contain similar acids, protein, and caffeine as those that have been roasted, but lack the taste. Heat must be applied for the Maillard and other chemical reactions to occur.
Therefore, different types of roasts give the coffee different flavours, generally, the darker the roast of a coffee bean, the more oils released in the process, giving the coffee a stronger, more bitter flavour.
