Did you know: Your nose plays a bigger part in ‘tasting’ coffee than your tongue?
Surprisingly, our tongues are sensitive to big flavour components like sweet, salty, bitter, sour and umami yet, the nuance of florals, fruits and sugars comes from aromatics travelling up your nose to the olfactory nerve, located at the roof of the nasal cavity (at the top of your nose).
While many people enjoy coffee for the ritual it provides within a busy lifestyle, Coffee tasting is a full sensory experience and can be enhanced with a little know how and guidance.
We've included some resources below on how professional coffee tasters and roasters alike create tasting notes and flavour profiles that accompany coffee. Not only can this information deepen your coffee knowledge, but it may also enhance your El Diviso Coffee Flight Trio experience by providing a framework and guidance allowing you to develop your own personalised tasting notes for these very special coffees.

Don't forget to use the Tasting Notes included with your El Diviso Coffee Flight Trio to guide you in the natural beauty in these coffees, but be open to the nuance of your brew method, and what impact this has in the cup.
We encourage you to prepare all 3 coffees in the same brew style & method, in close succession to experience how the varietal and processing methods used create striking differences to coffee that has been grown in the same soil, altitude and ripening.
