Exploring Coffee Flavour ☕️🍏🍓🍑

Ever wondered what makes your morning cup of coffee so delightful? It’s all about the flavour! Flavour is at the heart of our coffee journey and the cornerstone of every decision we make. We’re constantly on the hunt for new and unique coffee flavours to share with you, our coffee-loving community. Think of us as big kids in a candy shop, but with coffee!
What’s the Buzz About Coffee Flavour? 🐝
You might have heard of the Coffee Taster’s Flavour Wheel. This handy tool is like a roadmap of all the potential flavours you can find in coffee. It’s a must-have for anyone involved in coffee roasting, brewing, or tasting. But let’s face it, it can be a bit overwhelming at first glance. So, let’s break it down and make your coffee flavour adventures a little smoother.
Taste vs. Flavour: What’s the Difference? 🧐
It’s easy to mix up taste and flavour, but they’re not the same. Taste is the sensation you get from your taste buds and includes five basic categories: salt, sour, sweet, bitter, and umami. Flavour, on the other hand, is a blend of taste, smell (aromatics), and even memory. For instance, a coffee might taste sweet to you and remind you of strawberries, while someone else might think of raspberries. The key point is that the basic taste (sweet in this case) is the same, even if the specific flavour memories differ.
How Does This Help with Choosing Coffee? 🥸
When you browse our selection, you’ll notice each coffee comes with specific ‘taste notes’. These notes are crafted by our expert tasters who have honed their skills over many years. They capture the essence of each coffee’s flavour profile. Like the flavours of a cherry ripe? Think dark chocolate and cherry, then you’ll fall in love with our Blackbird blend. Prefer a more mild milk chocolate cup? Hollywood or Lovelace will be right up your alley!
Embrace Your Unique Palate 👅
Remember, everyone’s palate is unique. What you love, someone else might not, and that’s perfectly okay! We choose our coffees with a variety of flavour profiles to cater to different tastes, and you should explore and select based on what excites your taste buds. Tasting coffee is an adventure, so always have fun with it!
So next time you sip on your coffee, take a moment to savour the flavours. It’s all part of the wonderful world of coffee!
