You don’t have to be an expert to enjoy a great cup of coffee, but in case you’re keen to get clued on to a few key terms, we put together this little list.
This is literally the way the coffee feels in your mouth. It helps to compare it to the textures you get from other foods and drinks. It can range from syrupy to juicy or tea-like.
All beans are grown with their own unique flavours, which are enhanced by the roasting process. We don’t add any flavours to our coffee, our flavour notes explain what you might taste in a coffee.
Acidity is that sharpness you sometimes feel when you take a sip of coffee. It can vary a lot from being crisp, like apples or grapes, right through to citric acids, like orange, lemon and lime.
Just as different types of sugar can have different types of sweetness, a coffee’s sweetness can vary a great deal depending on the beans. Think unrefined, like cane sugar, or ripe like fruit.
Before they’re beans, coffees grow as cherries, which come in a number of varieties. Similar to how specific grape varietals make certain wines. Varietals of coffee include: Yellow Catuai, Bourbon and Caturra.
There are three different types of processes used to take coffee from the cherry that’s picked off the tree to the green bean that’s ready to be roasted. They are ‘washed’, ‘pulped natural’ and ‘natural’. Each type contributes to the unique flavour of the bean.
