Coffee beans are very stable chemically, even when roasted. That means coffee beans don't lose much caffeine in the roasting process.
However, light-roasted coffee beans are denser and heavier because they lose less water, so they have more caffeine per bean.
Dark-roasted coffee beans are less dense and weigh less. So you need to use a bigger volume of dark beans to get the same amount of caffeine in an equal volume of light-roasted beans.
But be cautioned, if you use a larger volume of dark beans, you are likely to have a very strong pot of coffee.

The practice has been perceived to be so effective that some have repurposed and applied it to caffeine.
