What does medium roasted coffee mean?

Coffee arrives in Italy raw, the famous green coffee.
The roaster’s job is to process that material to the best of his or her ability to create the product we all know, see, and taste every day.

However, there are different levels of roasting:

These three different roast levels, even when applied to the exact same batch of a given coffee, produce completely different results in the cup.


Used mainly for filter coffees in northern Europe. It makes coffees delicate and acidic, giving little body in the cup.


The one selected by us at Caffè Ernani. The best possible solution for intensely aromatic coffees, along with full-bodied and creamy in the cup.


Also referred to as "Italian roast," as preferred by most Italian roasters. Burning almost all the grains hides all the defects of a non-quality raw material.

A quality choice

Why did we choose Medium Roast?

Dark roasting is used to hide all the defects of low-quality raw coffee. Defects may be, for example, spoiled coffee beans, smell of jute, stagnant water and mold, or even taste of rubber or ash. Roasting coffees so much hides all the flaws.

On the flip side, however, you also remove the merits, namely all the natural scents or aromas of coffee. In addition, in the cup, the coffee will be very bitter, with burnt aromas; for this reason sugar is very often used to hide this intense bitterness.

At Caffè Ernani, on the other hand, by making a selection in the beginning of the raw beans and choosing only those of high quality and without defects, we can afford to roast coffees less. This will bring out all the natural flavors and aromas of the grains. In the cup, the coffee will turn out aromatic and good even without sugar!

In addition, in this way, each blend has well-defined and maximally enhanced aromas. Each café will therefore be very different from all the others in Ernani.

To know

Most brands on the market select raw coffee that is not always of high quality, therefore, with flaws. At this point the roaster is forced to hyper-toast the beans, almost to the point of burning them. This is called dark or Italian-style roasting when it is particularly black. Thus the defects are hidden by the intense aroma of burnt or ash, and the cup comes out very bitter. Sometimes a sugar packet is used to solve the problem of an inauthentic taste. However, it is not the best solution.


When starting with a quality raw material, roasting has the sole task of enhancing the natural aromas of raw coffee and not hiding them!

All of the coffee’s natural aromas are brought out to the fullest, making us enjoy a coffee that is intense, aromatic, and above all, with a delicate and pleasant bitterness.

Getting used to drinking coffee even without sugar is really easy with Caffè Ernani.

You will have an explosion of incredible flavors on your palate, such as aromas of flowers, citrus, cocoa, chocolate, tobacco, malt, fruit, and many more! You will discover a whole new taste in your coffee and fall madly in love with it!
