Coffee tasting is simply a process of comparing and contrasting different coffees.
If you taste two or three coffees you can develop your personal preference as well
as distinguish differences in aroma, acidity, and flavour. We recommend you start
with the lighter bodied coffees first and work up to fuller bodied coffees. Let's
get started and become a coffee expert!
Fresh filtered water:
The quality of water you use – in terms of the amount of mineral salts and chlorine
it contains – can greatly affect the taste of coffee. For best results, try using
purified water when making your next cup of coffee. If using tap water, let the
tap run for a while before filling the kettle, particularly in the morning. This
clears out water which has stood overnight in the pipes. Bring the water to the
boil, but don’t boil it for too long, as this removes oxygen and makes a flatter
cup of coffee.
Measure the amount of coffee exactly (use as much coffee as indicated on the packaging).
Several coffee mugs or bowls:
