City roast vs Full city roast
We are familiar with both the city roast and the whole city roast. These beans have a slightly darker roast. They are roasted dry and have a dark brown color. The beans don’t start roasting until the second crack, after the first crack. The whole city roast is often referred to as light French and light espresso.
