Have you ever wanted to tell someone about the fantastic cup of coffee you just had and then you find the words just wont come. It’s really frustrating as you feel you’re not doing justice to the grind.
With a little help from this wheel you can master descriptions of coffee’s main flavours and even subdivide those main flavours into particular types. In the diagram above, coffee flavours and aromas get more and more specific towards the edge of the wheel. You don’t have to use these words exactly to describe the coffee but an understanding of the structure of the smell and taste of coffee will help you communicate with people who care about coffee as much as you do.
