All five of our senses play a part when we sip a cup of coffee. That’s why many people refer to the simple act of drinking coffee as “the experience.” In the BHB Notes section, we cover some of the factors that influence this experience.
- Origin – Each origin (and sometimes each region within an origin) has its own characteristics that are affected by geography and culture.
- Processing Methods – There are three major methods used to process green coffee. Each affects the flavor of the coffee.
- Roast Level – Unlike what we see in the traditional market, the roast level is not a rigid set of rules, but rather a continuous scale.
