With every delivery, our shareholders know every detail of the product through something we call a cup profile. But what are we referring to when we use this term? We aren’t referring to the ceramic design nor a description of the silverware. A cup profile is the result from a process of tasting and today we want to share with you what it consists of and why it is important.
It is known that a cup of coffee contains up to 1200 chemical compounds which produce a range of different sensations. The way in which this analysis takes place is through our senses. Through these, we can establish ratings and definitions around certain elements such as frames, acidity, sweetness and aromatic hints.
If the cup profile fits the particularities of our taste buds, its complexity goes hand in hand with environmental factors such as climate conditions, altitude and soil properties. Thus, coffee, just like wine, obtains its aromas and tastes from the land from which it is cultivated. In turn, the coffee’s genetics plays an important role in a cup’s profile, that’s to say that the variety and process methods of the grains, the cultivation methods, can really make the difference.
Finally, a cup profile’s description is an added value which higher end coffees offer, such as speciality coffee. A normal coffee cannot produce this type of information for our senses.
What ultimately affects how the coffee will taste, is how the the person who is going to consume it prepares it. But it is true that everything we said it contains, is there and it is certified by our team of professionals who are exclusively dedicated to tasting the coffee before you, so that you can know from the cup’s profile, which will be your favorite.
