Le Nez du Café® contains a collection of 36 aromas to smell accompanied by a book. It enables you to:
1. Train and enrich your olfactory memory…
The sense of smell constitutes the most important sense in the perception of a coffee. But it is often difficult to identify an aroma in your coffee cup. Have you already encountered the feeling that you know a smell without being able to recognize it? Nothing is more normal! In the same way that we learned to read, write, or count, smelling also requires training.
2. …to better analyze the coffee that you taste
But “What use is that?”
First of all, recognizing aromas enriches your tasting vocabulary. Being able to attach a word to your impressions increases your tasting pleasure and allows you to share your ideas with others.
Then, the aromas of coffee inform us about its varietal and geographic origin and the different steps in its creation, from the methods of cultivation through the roasting of the beans to the techniques of preparation.
Le Nez du Café® thus permits you not only to perfect your sense of smell but also to understand the process of creating the coffee that produces the aromas.
This work is designed for professionals as well as connoisseurs eager to deepen their knowledge.
It offers 36 aromas for you to smell and memorize. The illustrated book describes the aromatic group of each aroma, its odoriferous features and its presence in the world’s coffees, as well as the art of coffee growing, roasting and brewing.
This product is a requirement for the SCAA Coffee Taster Pathway Classes and the SCAE Coffee Diploma System.
