Knowing The Coffee Aroma

0

Do you wake up in the morning because of the pleasant coffee aroma? Well most of us do!Coffee provides us a “pick me up” we need every morning, but did you know that aroma is not just about the smell? Aroma is responsible for all the coffee attributes other than the mouthfeel and sweet, salt, bitter, and sour taste that is perceived by the tongue. Therefore, aroma might consider as the most important component of specialty coffee.

Roasting triggers the chemical process within the beans causing the development of volatile compounds that contribute to the aroma profile. But not all coffee beans provides a strong scent like the green coffee beans which have a limited aroma that is often described as providing green or musty notes.

There are two types how we can determine the aroma of coffee;

1. It can be sense nasally via smelling through our nose.
2. It can be taste through our mouth by swallowing, and aromatic volatile compounds drift upward into the nasal passage.

Aroma of coffee is not just a single component, in fact, the aromatic compounds increase every year. Today the number is over 800 coffee elements make up the fragrance we know as the coffee aroma. Humans tend to love scents because it touches many of our scent receptors. These scents help us to connect around including with coffee, and this is the reason why we are drawn to the scent of our coffee aroma every morning.

The smell of the coffee triggers a good feeling, memories, and even trauma, so it is no wonder that it triggers our feeling of wakefulness. When we smell the coffee it signals our brain that caffeine is on the way, which provides stimulation and this one of the reasons why we are addicted to caffeine.

Know How Much Acid In Your Coffee

0

Do you often experience heartburn and acid reflux every time you drink coffee? Does your doctor recommend to drink only low-acid coffee?Coffee aficionados identify acidity as the bright and sparkling sensation we experience when we drink coffee, however, most of us are now switching to coffee in low-acidity to prevent the sour, tangy, bitter, sharp that acid reflux brings.

Let’s take a look at what are the types of acids we can find to your coffee.

Citric acid – This acid is commonly found in citrus fruits that are associated in lemon, and oranges, and often found in Arabica coffee beans with higher elevations.

Phosphoric acid – Sweeter than most acids, they are associated with grapefruit-or-mango-like one.

Malic acid – this acid is usually associated with hints of stone fruits like peaches or plums but coffee with malic acid is taste like apple or pear.

Chlorogenic acids – Is responsible for coffee’s acidity. Compared with other acids they are the ones degrade rapidly in roasting, which is why light roasts are described as “bright” and “acidic” more often than dark ones.

Acetic acid – the same acid that can found in vinegar, it produces a pleasant sharpness at lower concentrations. A coffee that has a lot of acetic acids probably wasn’t properly processed.

Quinic acid –
commonly found in dark roast coffee, stale coffee, and coffee that was brewed several hours but kept warm on a hot plate. Quinic acid gives a clean finish to coffee and the main cause that turns stomachs sour.

Many of the tastes your coffee can be directly attributed to the acids contained within them and acidity usually occurs in the roasting process. If you can identify acids in your coffee then you’ll be able to look for coffees that have been grown or roasted in a way likely to produce those acids.

Let’s Find Out How Expert You Are In Your Cup Of Coffee

0

Coffee is not all about the taste and pleasure we get to it, but when you’re a coffee lover you should always know how to differentiate the coffee characteristics, compare and contrast them by identifying each aroma, acidity, body, and flavor.

Aroma – Sometimes we get hooked up in a cup of Joe because of its aroma. These distinctive aromas are directly corresponding to the coffee flavors it could be spicy, earthy, florally, nutty or others depending on the type and roast of the coffee.

Acidity – There is no such thing as “low-acid coffee” because all coffee beans have a natural acid that occurs in the coffee roasting process. Low-acid coffee feels smooth in the mouth and lingers while coffee with high-acid is described as bright, tangy and crisp with clean finish. This coffee acidity affects the coffee’s final flavor. Nowadays people are switching to coffee with low-acid to prevent heartburn and acid reflux.

Body – Have you observed the weight of your coffee? It’s not in grams but how it feels on your tongue. Does it feel light or full in your mouth? You can feel the weight of full-bodied coffee on your tongue, and the flavor lingers, while light-bodied coffee feels light and don’t linger.

Flavor – We love our cup of Joe because of its flavor the way coffee taste are different from one another. There are flavors of citrus, cocoa, and the most common are the berry coffee, which is good for roasting and often taste strong or subtle.

These are the common characteristics of your everyday coffee knowing them will bring you more knowledge to your daily cup of Joe.

0

How do you like your coffee? Do you prefer milk over creamer? Do you like sweet or bitter? Whatever your preferences to your cup of Joe this latest coffee trend will make you surprise and surely you want to try after you read this article.

Nowadays people are becoming more and more conscious of their health that is why a lot are switching to a healthier way of eating especially in drinking their favorite beverage which is coffee.

The latest trend today for coffee lovers is putting butter on the cup of Joe this is insanely crazy, but a lot were saying it’s the best thing they have ever tried.

People who haven’t tried the butter coffee trend are skeptical about the idea because they said butter is the unhealthiest product to put on your coffee. But not all butter brands are bad for the health there are several organic brands most likely grass-fed butter. This type of butter came from grass-fed cows and not by cows that are usually fed by soy and corn that can’t even digest their food properly, and their milk creates fats that you don’t want in your body. Grass-fed cows produce the best milk and give the best beef, and the butter is 100% organic and tastes great too.

Here are five facts why you should try the coffee butter bandwagon and switch to an organic way of drinking coffee.

1. Grass-fed butter is the only kind that contains the right fats to regulate cholesterol. It has the right amount of omega 3 and omega-6 fatty acids, known to reduce cholesterol and a great source of vitamin K.
As shown in many studies, these are all facts that can help in reducing heart disease.

2. Grass-fed butter gives healthy fats to your brain and body, providing proper creation of cell walls, membranes, and hormones.

3, Consuming coffee with butter every morning will help you burn fats all day. CLA, or conjugated linoleic acid, contained in grass-fed butter, reduces body fat mass, especially in individuals struggling with obesity.

4. “Bulletproof” coffee provides energy and increases your cognitive functions. You can literally feel the energy kick in your body and will enjoy the effects for 6 hours, without any crash.

5. Butter coffee can be a meal replacement in the morning just add two tablespoons of butter to your cup of coffee, and you are good to go. It provides essential fats and calories, giving a higher performance blend than carbohydrate sources like oatmeal.

Adding butter to your cup of Joe gives a delicious creamy taste and energizes your body. So, if you decide to join in the butter coffee bandwagon get the best of everything, by having the best butter and coffee beans so that you can enjoy your sip of coffee.
