How to taste coffee at home?

Updated: Jun 10, 2020

Develop your tasting skills to open up the world of flavour notes in coffee.

We got inspired by James Hoffmann's book "The World Atlas of Coffee. From beans to brewing - coffees explored, explained, and enjoyed" and decided to share the author's main points on the topic of home-tasting coffee.

Keep mining for new flavours. Always.
