How to choose component coffees or blends

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. For a coffee high in sweetness try Brazilian, Peruvian or Mexican coffee beans.

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 Costa Rican, Colombian or Indonesian coffee.

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 in Kenyan or Ethiopian coffee beans.
