The following cupping notes are relative to light to medium roast profiles.
As the roast profile temperature increases resulting in a medium to medium/dark and even a French or Italian roasted coffee, the aforementioned notes will be eclipsed, resulting in a more bold and roasted flavor. The darker the roast, the more subtle the flavor character differences will be between single origin and microlot coffees.
