Tasting notes in coffee arise from the combination of acidity, sweetness and body of the coffee.
Different levels of these three key flavour components result in coffee having more defining tastes which we liken to familiar things.
On a fundamental level, different coffee can be characterised by whether it tastes fruity or whether it tastes chocolatey. Some coffees can also have more peculiar flavours like wine or flowers - because of the different levels of sweetness, acidity and the bitterness in the body.
Trying new coffee from different farms across the world really excites us. We pinpoint flavour profiles and explore the tasting notes these coffees bring to us from their growing conditions and region.
