http://photos3.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/4/9/5/4/event_140598772.jpegWe will taste 3-4 coffees from different parts of the world, including Africa, Central America and Pacific Asia. Three of the coffee are of SCAA Specialty Grade (score 80 or above), washed and natural sun-dried, which has different tasting profile from the conventional or traditional bitter coffee we were once accustomed to. Coffee can be fruity, chocolaty, earthy, smoky... depending on their growing regions and processing methods. Since we are not doing milk tasting nor syrup tasting, we will skip the sugar and cream/milk. Prepared for black coffee.

I will guide you through the tasting notes with the SCAA "Coffee Taster's Flavor Wheel", a tool many coffee professionals use when tasting coffee. Also guide you through the characteristic of coffee from different continent, stories about each origin and their tasting profile. I will also demonstrate different home coffee brewing method.
