One of the acids contained in coffee is chlorogenic acid which can also be an antioxidant in coffee. This acid breaks during the roasting process. And renowned coffee expert James Hoffman once wrote in his book “The longer and darker the roasted coffee beans, the lower the acidity level”. That is why light roasted coffee will contain more obvious acidity (clear). Coffee that is roasted too dark will lose antioxidants and can also damage the “flavor notes” (notes) inherent in the characteristics of coffee beans.
Apart from chlorogenic acid, in coffee there is also quinic acid which plays an important role in coffee. Chlorogenic acid is reduced and even lost in the roasting process, so quinic acid appears mysteriously. This acid will later influence the taste in drinks. Quinic acid is the acid most responsible for the taste in the coffee we enjoy
