Are both of the sentences correct and mean the same?

A coffee’s intensity depends on the coffee’s degree of roasting.
The coffee’s intensity is defined by the coffee’s degree of roasting.

I'm not familiar with the meaning of intensity when you are talking about coffee, but here is some discussion of this, so it is a valid word to use.

its is fine here.

a coffee suggests you are speaking generally about coffee.

The coffee suggests that you are talking about some specific type of coffee.

I'd used depends on, not defined by.

Your sentence is not wrong, but I'd prefer to reword it like this. A coffee’s intensity depends on how much it has been roasted.
