    Roasting in Portugal is less intense compared to a dark roasting, used in other countries, preserving the essence of the Portuguese coffee and giving it less acidity, strong aroma and sweetness and a full-bodied drink. Roasting in Portugal focuses on medium to medium dark roast, allowing the coffee to express his regional flavour associated with each origin, resulting in a roasted coffee with scent and enhanced body and a sweetness that offers a sensory experience of tasting that tends to extend the flavour in your mouth and that creates a consumer memory.
