The positive and negative effects of coffee
There are two kinds of roasting: The Industrial roasting is when they roast the beans for 4 to 10 minutes. This is what chain cafes like Starbucks, and Dunkin' Donuts buy their coffee so they can get more coffee faster and for less money but the Traditional roasting is how good quality coffee is made. It takes about 20 minutes for traditional roasting to finish because when the beans are slowly made, the have richer flavors.
