HOW DOES AIR DENSITY AFFECT THE FLAVOR OF COFFEE?
It’s a little-known fact that coffee roasted at a high altitude requires lower temperatures and roasting time. At high elevations, the air is more thin and dry. Less oxygen and moisture in the air results in a faster roast development over a shorter period of time.

For this reason, roasting coffee at a high elevation can help you avoid baking or scorching your beans. Scorching or baking your coffee causes a lack of development and lack of expansion that results in flat, burnt flavors.

Baked coffee beans refers to the bland flavor that results from roasting the beans for too long. Scorching coffee occurs when the beans are roasted at a temperature that’s too high. It can result in a woody flavor. Roasting at a high elevation can help you avoid both of these problems, allowing you to achieve the tastiest roast for your coffee.

HIGH-ALTITUDE ROASTING RESULTS IN MORE COMPLEX FLAVOR COMPOUNDS
When you roast your coffee at a high temperature, the coffee will roast much more quickly. A quick roast will allow the entire flavor compound of the bean to become more pronounced. This means that nutty, chocolaty, fruity, and berry flavors will taste more full in each sip of coffee.

A shorter roast period at a lower temperature results in a smoother, more complex flavor that actually tastes fresher for longer. High altitude roasting results in the smoothest, freshest roast—and therefore results in the best coffee.
