COFFEE TASTING EXPERIENCES

AROMA

Fresh roasted coffee contains a complex collection of smells. Savour them by taking the time to gently inhale as you’re drinking.

FLAVOUR

All our coffees have a unique set of flavours that create a taste profile. We’ve given you some notes on what you might taste. Pro-tip: drink the coffee as it cools to taste the more delicate notes and take a breath after every sip to maximise the experience.

MOUTHFEEL

The coffee can taste different depending on how you brew it. RIch and syrupy for espressos and strong brews, or juicy and delicate for lighter, paper-filter brewing styles. 

ACIDITY

Acidity is tightening sensation in your mouth when you drink your coffee. Just like a good bottle of wine or juice, acidity can be intense or light, sharp or round, and can feel similar to lemon, orange lemon or lime juice.

BALANCE

Balance is about how all the separate experiences of your coffee sip come together to complement each other.

SWEETNESS

Sugars in coffee are sought after and are often overpowered by bitter compounds from coffee as a result of over-roasting or over-brewing. They can be dark like burnt sugar or sweet like fresh lemon juice.

AFTERTASTE

That lingering taste. Is it good? WIll I take another sip? Aftertaste can be complex, fragrant and lingering or dull, muddied and long. Which would you prefer?

COMPLEXITY

How any flavours or aste sensations can you experience? Complexity for coffee, or for any beverage, is often a sought after quality and a good indication that your coffee is damn good coffee.

CLARITY

How distinct the taste experiences are. Often paired with complexity, the two often go hand-in-hand to describe a seriously good brew.
