All of the chemical compounds that contribute to coffee’s flavor evolve naturally. They are created as the coffee shrub converts water and carbon dioxide into sugar through photosynthesis with the assistance of various mineral elements pulled from the soil, the coffee shrub metabolizes the plant sugars it has created, either using them for sustenance and growth or storing them in its seeds (beans) for germination man interrupts this natural process by harvesting and drying the seeds, heating and crushing them, and extracting their chemical components with hot water. The resulting coffee beverage has flavor, body and color, derived from a complex set of naturally occurring organic and inorganic compounds.
Coffee flavor is the simultaneous sensation in the palate of aroma and taste. Coffee aroma is composed of the gaseous natural chemical components of roasted coffee beans, which escape as gases after the coffee beans are ground and as vapors after the coffee grounds brewed. Coffee taste is composed of the water soluble organic and inorganic natural chemical components of roasted and ground coffee beans, which are extracted as liquids during the brewing process.

The palate records the sensations of aroma through olfactory cells located on the nasal membrane. The process of sensing odors is called olfaction, which is the simultaneous sensation of thousands of distinct gaseous compounds. The nasal membrane has the capacity to sense not only the types of compounds present but also their intensity. It interprets these aromatic sensations as unique patterns, and in the mind records them as distinct odors.
The palate records the sensations of taste through buds located on the tongue. The process of sensing taste is called gestation, which is the simultaneous sensation of four basic tastes: sweet, salt, sour and bitter. Through a process called taste modulation, these basic taste sensations interact with one another to produce the wide range of taste experiences.
Residues remaining in the palate that have not vaporized or dissolved create a sense of body, which is a relative comparison of mouth feel of the sensation to a standard substance, usually water. (The Coffee Cuppers Handbook: Ted R Lingle Third Edtion)

Effective blending occurs when coffees from various regions are chosen, and roasted to a specific roast degree to fully develop the best attributes of that bean in order to release the most pleasing characteristics to create aroma and cup that satisfies the most discerning palate. Then combining various beans to create a cup that has flavor, body and a pleasing mouth feel.

We are continuous researching and developing our blends. We strive to create new blends that will satisfy even the most discerning palate.
