What Makes Coffee Good?
We’ve all seen them--heck, we might even be one--wine connoisseurs sitting in nice restaurants swirling their 2009 pinot noir commenting about “legs” or “tannins”.

Coffee is not unlike wine when it comes to the complexity of taste and numerous other characteristics. Just like wine grapes, a coffee bean’s quality is highly dependent on where and what conditions it is grown in. The difference between a smooth or a bitter morning coffee is also determined by the journey of the bean, its roasting, and then finally, the storage and process of which your beverage is made.
