You're tastes have grown accustomed to a certain...taste.
Like kids raised on fried food and candy don't like their vegetables.
It's a matter of personal choice, but roasting the beans is what gives them flavor. Dark roast beans have been roasted longer than other types of beans. Some of the "premium" coffee producers dark roast their beans even longer than others. Roasting is an expense especially in terms of time. The longer the bean is roasted, the darker it is, but also the more time that takes and time means more energy and probably people, both of which need to be paid for. You may not like the darker flavor. Don't let people get on you about liking Folgers. Lots of people love it!
you're used to it. I still prefer Kraft mac n' cheese to any gourmet option 9 times out of ten.
