Series II, Part I
Coffee – it is so much more than a caffeinated beverage. It’s a connector, a conversation starter, a culture, and a community builder. We have all had a cup of coffee that we will always remember. On the flip-side, we have all had a cup or two that I’m sure we wish we could forget.
In this book, we will discuss what makes a great coffee great and a bad coffee just plain bad. We will learn about the variables and parameters that are essential to preparing great coffee. We will help you begin to develop your palate and tasting vocabulary, which will help you describe and diagnose flavor characteristics that indicate whether a brew is on or off the mark. This book will equip you with the fundamental skills to help you think critically about how you can tweak your recipes or techniques for the next brewing attempt.
Series II, Part II
You may have heard the term “cupping” being thrown around by coffee
professionals, but what exactly does it mean? For those of you who have
witnessed a cupping before, it might have appeared elaborate and maybe even
intimidating. All the sniffing, slurping, and spitting in public seems a rather odd
thing to do. But in the coffee world, it is a very common and normal practice!
In this book, we will discuss the history of cupping and how it came to be. We will
learn why cupping is such a widely accepted testing and tasting tool. We will walk
through the steps of the cupping process and learn about the tools essential to
carry out a cupping successfully. We will also help you continue to develop your
palate and tasting vocabulary. This book will introduce you to the five tastes along
with a little bit of the science behind how we sense flavor, aroma, and mouthfeel.
Lastly, we will briefly introduce you to the various factors that ultimately lead to
the flavor of a coffee bean.
