The difference is created by the time spent in the roaster or the number of times the roasting process has been repeated to achieve the preferred roasted bean.
Light roasts tend to leave a residual flavor of the environment in which the bean was cultivated whilst dark roasted have a profound effect on the chemical make up and thus flavor of the coffee bean.
