COFFEE TASTE PERCEPTION AND THE COLOR OF OUR CUP

Color is a power which directly influences the soul. 
Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944), Russian painter and art theorist

Cups in specialty coffee

Specialty coffee culture is a multi-sensual, aesthetic experience. We experience the preparation and enjoyment of the coffee drink itself with not only our nose and taste-buds but also with all our other senses.

KODAWARI AND KISSATEN – JAPANESE COFFEE CULTURE

COFFEE BREWING – DEFINITION

Brewing

Brewing is a very important part of all the processes. It is hard to say what part of the process, from selecting coffee beans, equipment, preparation, blooming or even writing the recipe for the coffee drink to be served, is most important. I think the only difference is in the time for blooming and brewing. You have limited time and you can’t really postpone the time limit like for other processes. So, there is less time for improvising like for other parts of the processes.
