What a glorious day – National Coffee Day! This is a day to celebrate the drink that wakes us up in the morning, gives us a pick-up for our late afternoon meetings and is perfect as an after-dinner drink.
www.nationaldaycalendar.com gives us the inside scoop for a good cup of coffee.
According to an expert cupper (a professional coffee taster), there are four components of a perfect cup: aroma, body, acidity, and flavor.
When determining the body of a coffee, the bean, the roast, and the brew are all factors. The bean affects the texture of the coffee, whether its silky, creamy, thick or thin on the tongue and throat. However, the darker the roast and how it is brewed will alter the feel of a coffee’s body, too. The region a coffee is grown determines its acidity. The higher the elevation the coffee grows, the higher the quality and the acidity. These coffees are considered brighter, dryer, even sparkling by cuppers.
