This class is a learn-by-doing and tasting-style class. It begins with foundational knowledge learning activities for the three key elements of Flavor (taste, aroma and mouthfeel). We build on this foundation by introducing the sensory analysis tools of Flavor Examples and Flavor References.

As we focus on evaluating the quality of the coffee inside the coffee value chain, we introduce the concepts of Flavor Standards and we train with dedicated solutions.

Our class day concludes by conducting sensory analysis quality testing used by industry and simulating an individual calibration with Flavor Standards.

The way to construct a consistent language of quality understood around the world is to use globally available Flavor Standards where individuals are trained, tested and continuously recalibrated at regular intervals to the standards of the Coffee Quality Institute.
