How to Taste Coffee
Enter the wide world of coffee flavor. Have you ever purchased coffee based on delectable flavor notes—strawberry jam, milk chocolate, hazelnut—only to find none of that in your cup? It’s a common experience among coffee lovers. But with a little knowledge, a little practice, and the ability to slow down and savor, you really can find hints of fruit, chocolate, and nuts in your coffee.
With the same accessible approach she took in her bestselling Craft Coffee, Jessica Easto explains how our senses perceive coffee, what creates and affects coffee flavor, and how to practice your sensory skills with nineteen exercises designed to help you identify what you’re tasting. You’ll come away with an improved ability to choose coffee you’re going to love, a more developed palate, and a better understanding of the complexity contained within these tiny beans. How to Taste Coffee inspires readers to taste widely and sip consciously, with more appreciation, more discernment, and a greater sense of wonder.
