How a cup of coffee taste does not only depend on the coffee itself – but as well of the person tasting it. We taste differently. We perceive differently. We notice different things in the taste. See Taste preferences.
But your ability to taste is not unchangeable. I so often hear people say they are not good at tasting. But it is not that difficult to get better. See Improve your tasting skills
Also see The Coffee Landscape.
And see cupping – It is a brewing method to compare coffees. It is widely used in the coffee business.
So much is going on in the taste of coffee but we don’t notice it all at once. You can go discover. That’s why I love exploring with the taste sense – and taste coffee with other coffee enthusiasts.
