It’s an expression of one's taste.

It’s an expression of one's taste.

The bean’s oils and organic acids are extracted during the brewing process that impacts the body such as the coffee's viscosity which contributes to the sensation of the coffee's richness, including its aroma and flavor. 

Both drip and filter brewing method removes many desirable flavorful oils. Such brewing methods produce a coffee with a lighter body.

A French Press brew that uses metallic filters will have more body because the essential oils remain in the coffee.

  • LIGHT BODY (or "thin body") . . . grown at low altitudes in soils lacking nutrients and exhibit a light body. Paper filters remove oils as well as other solids make a lighter-bodied coffee, as well as k-cup brewing.
  • MEDIUM BODY . . . is between a mild and a heavy syrupy coffee. Mild and heavy-bodied coffees might be too extreme in one direction or another, a medium-bodied coffee will suit well with easy-going drinkers.

  • HEAVY BODY . . . can be felt on the tongue. Not quite textured, because of its combination of fat, protein, and fiber content. The beans mainly are from high and shade-grown, rich in volcanic soils, and are seen as a positive attribute. The brewing method in an espresso or steel-filter pour-over drip coffee can also be the result of a heavy body coffee.
