Coffee: The Sensory Side


Since the recent success of our Eat Cambridge Coffee Origins event we've decided to open up our Staff Coffee Night to our customers too! If you'd like to come along it's £5 per person and there's no need to book - just turn up on the night. 

Jack will be taking us through what he learnt during his SCAE training on Sensory skills.  This will be a relaxed and informal evening so don't expect anything fine polished - we're just happy to share our love of coffee with you too :)

"The sensory module covers everything to do with tasting and flavour perception, understanding the 5 basic tastes and how to pick out sweet, bitter, sour salty & umami in different coffees. We also went deeper, familiarising ourselves with 24 different aromas found in roasted coffee, why they might occur and what impact that has on the experience of the cup. Essentially we were learning to evaluate coffee objectively rather than subjectively - it was a fascinating experience allowing me to develop my palate and analyse coffee in greater detail."
