Wine Taster and Coffee Taster

Some people that are good or shall I say professional in tasting wine can tell the age of the wine just by a slip of it. That is for wine but how about coffee? Can it be taste just like wine and tell the details of where or when it is produced and how it is roast? Well, I haven’t seen that before. There are only a few things that I’ll say about the coffee that I drink. Either they are expensive, cheap, cold, hot, sweet or strong. It’s more like the way of having beer instead of wine. If you’re interested in finding out some method of tasting coffee, check out the wheel below. Here’s the link to a larger picture for a better view – Coffee Taster’s Flavor Wheel.

Coffee cupping, or coffee tasting, is the practice of observing the tastes and aromas of brewed coffee.[1] It is a professional practice but can be done informally by anyone or by professionals known as "Master Tasters". A standard coffee cupping procedure involves deeply sniffing the coffee, then loudly slurping the coffee so it spreads to the back of the tongue. The coffee taster attempts to measure aspects of the coffee's taste, specifically the body (the texture or mouthfeel, such as oiliness), sweetness (the perceived sweetness at the sides of the tongue), acidity (a sharp and tangy feeling at the tip of the tongue, like when biting into an orange), flavour (the characters in the cup), and aftertaste. Since coffee beans embody telltale flavours from the region where they were grown, cuppers may attempt to predict the coffee's origin.

i always buy coffee beans from hype coffee. I find that they set the standard for coffee beans in England together with Has Bean who are also very good. Fresh is best when it comes to coffee beans so buy it quick - and use it faster.
