Taste of Coffee by Regions

Coffee is simply Coffee, Right?

No, altitude, temperature, rainfall, sunlight, and a bunch of other stuff all affect how the coffee grows and the way the coffee tastes.

Imagine the rocky hilltops of rural Kenya compared with the luxurious jungle of northern Thailand. an equivalent plant will grow quite differently in those two locations.

Where coffee comes from plays an enormous role in what that coffee tastes like in your cup! Similar with wine or brandy, there's a difference in taste you'll never imagine.

There’s a definite difference between the juicy and acidic fruitiness of African coffee and therefore the earthy and nutty taste of Asian coffee. Then there are methods of production that highlight these flavors and really make them distinct.

These three main areas: Latin American, Africa, and Asia. Latin American coffees known for their sweeter and balanced flavors, African coffees for bright, fruity, and floral notes whereas Asian coffees for their earthy, spicy, and woody tastes.

When I first step into coffee, I think it tastes brown and bitter.

How Coffee Can Taste Like Blueberry, Hazelnut Or Cocoa…

Coffee is an intensely flavorful drink. you recognize this already if you’ve ever tried a very bad, bitter cup of black coffee. It’s only undrinkable due to how powerful the flavour is from the coffee.

But as I know it, those same flavors that are present in fruit or nuts or flowers are often present simply because the chemical structure is comparable.

You need high-quality coffee of single-origin (for the flavors to actually stand out), roasted and brewed well, and not drowned in cream, sugar, or milk.
