How to Choose Your Coffee Blend and Roast Profile

You want your final product to reflect your unique style and preferred tastes. It's helpful to know what flavours you like and how they best work together.

A sweet base note: Your coffee will need to take on browning flavours. Beans from Brazil, Peru, and Mexico make for a sweet base note.

Mid-palate satisfaction: The mid-palate requires something juicy with plenty of malic acids; think flavour notes of apple, peach or stone fruit. You may want to consider beans from Costa Rica, Colombia or Indonesia.

High notes: This comes from the kinds of coffees that can be roasted light and will take on citric acidity and floral notes, which you will find from Kenyan or Ethiopian coffee beans.
