It enables you to:
1. Train and enrich your olfactory memory
The sense of smell constitutes the most important sense in the perception of a coffee. But it is often difficult to identify an aroma in your coffee cup. Have you already encountered the feeling that you know a smell without being able to recognize it? Nothing is more normal! In the same way that we learned to read, write, or count, smelling also requires training.
2. …to better analyze the coffee that you taste
But “What use is that?” First of all, recognizing aromas enriches your tasting vocabulary. Being able to attach a word to your impressions increases your tasting pleasure and allows you to share your ideas with others. Then, the aromas of coffee inform us about its varietal and geographic origin and the different steps in its creation, from the methods of cultivation through the roasting of the beans to the techniques of preparation.
Le Nez du Café thus permits you not only to perfect your sense of smell but also to understand the process of creating the coffee that produces the aromas.
This work is designed for professionals as well as connoisseurs eager to deepen their knowledge.
This product is used in the activities and practical exams of the SCA Sensory Skills courses for all three course levels: Foundation, Intermediate and Professional courses.
“My biggest difficulty was always with vanilla, chocolate and caramel. For me they were very similar. I needed this box to train myself to distinguish them. Le Nez du Café helped me to clarify things, to be on the same level as other people in the industry, to be able to talk about coffee at cuppings or in my daily routine, talking about a coffee you just brewed, or an espresso.”
