Coffee For Every Personality

Every Coffee is Unique

Just like humans, each coffee farm produces different unique cherries which result in a wide variety of flavors and aromas within the brewed coffee cup. At Bedfellows, we celebrate that variation, as our subscribers know very well. 

The coffee tasting wheel, partially pictured above, is used as a guide in the coffee world to allow roasters, baristas & farmers to place their coffees on the spectrum. You start from the center. Identify one. Then if you can, you move outward from that section to see if you can taste or smell the next layer of intricacy.

When I'm sipping samples, when I'm roasting, when I'm drinking my own coffee in my own bed...I get this flavor wheel out. I know...nerd.

Now, originally, this wheel was never meant to be communicated to the end customer, it began merely as an internal aid within the coffee industry. But, like wine, coffee is just too much fun. Once you get going on this type of thing (if you're like me) there's just no stopping it. We're seeing the same development in Craft Beer, even in Cheesemaking. I am into it. You?
