What affects coffee flavor?

From farm to cup!

These factors shared here are just some of the basic fundamentals from farm to cup that coffee flavors are affected.

The crop freshness, the way coffee is packaged, how it is stored both before and after roasting, and the age of the roast.

  • What Else Affects Coffee Flavors?
    Altitude and temperature are intrinsically linked because the former depends so heavily on the latter.
  • Sweetness and acidity . . .
    Coffees grown at higher altitudes will tend to be more acidic, but sweeter.

  • Striking the balance . . .
    Due to the complexity in the coffee that no one quality overwhelms all others, balancing is as overwhelming to get a near-perfect cup of coffee.

  • Spices . . .
    Common spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, lavender, are just some spices that blend well.Cocoa Powder . . .

  • Mocha . . .
    unsweetened cocoa powder, also is a common coffee shop option. The combo makes an irresistibly rich drink.

And for a number of years, we focused on helping people find their desired coffee machine (we still are helping folks with that!
