Coffee roasting is a process where the raw coffee beans are heated and roasted through. This gives the beans the colour, taste and aroma you know – and contributes to a great cup of coffee. When it comes to roasting coffee beans, there are many concepts, knowledge and know-how worth knowing. Especially if you want to try home carving (link to home carving page). If you’re just a little interested, there’s a lot to know on this site, where we’ll tell you a little about light-roasted coffee.

What is light roast coffee?

Light roast coffee is rich in complexity and has a sweet aroma. Light coffee gives you a mild cup of coffee where it’s clear to taste the coffee’s many nuances as the coffee’s natural characteristics come to the fore.

The light coffee is roasted until the temperature reaches 180-205 degrees. Here, the beans have a light colour, which probably comes as no surprise when you have the name of the roasting in mind. The lighter brown colour is the result of the light roasting.

If you have a Hario V60 or another pour-over coffee brewer as your favourite in your kitchen, we recommend you look towards the lighter coffee beans such as light roast or medium roast coffee (link to medium roast). You can also enjoy lightly roasted coffee with your filter coffee.

Light roasted and sustainable coffee

At ØNSK you will find sustainable quality coffee, always freshly roasted in our micro-roastery. Of course, we also roast coffee here. For example, our light roast coffee from Peru has a sweet and fruity taste with notes of cane sugar, peach and rose. The coffee comes from farmer Cesar Sampertegui, who grows it high in the Peruvian mountains.

Rasmus from ØNSK is particularly fond of this coffee: “I am really impressed that Cesar manages to bring out both honey sweetness and fruity and floral flavours in the coffee. It all works harmoniously together to make a complex, yet hugely enjoyable coffee to drink.”

At ØNSK, we shake hands with farmers and visit their farms and surrounding environment with pride and joy. So we know that Cesar is 100% in control of growing honey bee. And so have all our other farmers.
