"Originally published in 1995, the Coffee Taster's Flavor Wheel—one of the most iconic resources in the coffee industry—has been the industry standard for over two decades. In 2016, this valuable resource was updated in collaboration with World Coffee Research (WCR). The foundation of this work, the World Coffee Research Sensory Lexicon, is the product of dozens of professional sensory panelists, scientists, coffee buyers, and roasting companies collaborating via WCR and SCAA. This is the largest and most collaborative piece of research on coffee flavor ever completed, inspiring a new set of vocabulary for industry professionals".
Coffee Taster's Flavor Wheel
What is the Flavor Wheel? By, The Specialty Coffee Asociation of America (SCAA).
The quantity of different fragrances, aromas and flavors you could find in a coffee brew is so large, that usually we can't get to identify all of them. Sometimes, because we don`t have much time, but most of the times, because no one told us before what we where supuse to be tasting and that we could get a totally different experience while drinking coffee.
Coffee is over 2,000 chemical components and just around 1,2% of it is caffeine (for Arabica coffees, and around 2,5% for Robusta). Then if you just drink coffee for caffeine, you’re losing the entire picture.
Our mission is to show there is more. That if you already love coffee, you could love it even more. With our coffee tastes you can get a mind changing experience, while learning about the world of specialty coffee in Colombia and tasting the best flavors we found for you. Let us take you in the journey (TRAVESÍA)!
