Brian Kamusinga will be presenting on the paper "Chemometric Modeling of Coffee Sensory Notes through Their Chemical Signatures: Potential and Limits in Defining an Analytical Tool for Quality Control." You can see the abstract here: https://pubs.acs.org/doi/ipdf/10.1021/acs.jafc.8b01340
Who couldn't love a paper that starts off with an abstract like this: "Aroma is a primary hedonic aspect of a good coffee." The presentation will be mostly based on chemical sensors (Brian's area of interest). He will talk a little about how these work, and we'll learn how taste biosensors work as well. Brian's a great presenter, so be prepared to have fun and learn a lot even if you have no idea what chemistry is. And here's a bonus: if you're a coffee snob, I'm sure this talk will help you up your game to new levels of sophistication!
Food this meetup will be sponsored by Capnion! Thanks to Capnion founder Alex Mueller for generously sponsoring our meetup.
We'll be meeting at Human Spaces---if you haven't been before, it's at 216 Haven Street and looks like a house, so don't worry when you find yourself in a residential neighborhood---you're in the right place! There is usually ample street parking nearby.
See you all soon!
