5 Steps to Coffee Snobbery
How to taste coffee?
Step 1: Breathe in the fragrant aroma of your cup of coffee. Try to identify that aroma. What does the aroma remind you of? Can you differentiate between the coffees?
Step 2: Take a quick sip. What flavours can you identify?
Step 3: For the next taste, slurp instead of sip. Slurping allows you to gather more of the coffee and spread it evenly across your tongue. By completely covering your tongue, your palate will be able to take in a greater variety of flavours.
Step 4: With each subsequent taste, think about your palate with the diagram below in mind.
Step 5: Sit back, relax, and just enjoy it!
