    Default Roasters who use Agtron numbers to indicate roast levels

    The labels used to describe degree of roast, such as "light" or "medium dark" are inherently ambiguous, as they adhere to no known standard. On the other hand, scales such as Agtron numbers are consistent and finely graded. I just came across the shop site of the US roasters Counter Culture. They do give the Agtron roast levels of their coffees. Here's an example

    I, at least, would be grateful if this sort of thing were to become widespread among specialty roasters
    Londinium 1, Monolith Flat, Pharos, Lido 3, Chemex, Gene Café, Atago Barista

    I'd rather they offer 2 options, brew and espresso for example, instead of a single omniroast.

    Agtron scales are quite meaningless to the average consumer.

    Recently found Fjord Coffee Roasters in Berlin that do this. Only tried their Duromina (Ethiopia) Espresso roast so far but it's fantastic.
