You will also see different roast levels with a blend, and with some coffees I will roast some of the beans light and some of the beans darker and blend those to create a melange. One thing I won't do is burn the beans like a major coffee retailer based out of Seattle

Does that help?

I'll be adding a thread with some common coffee terms, including the definitions of the roast levels, shortly.
