Eth Nat Yirg Idido roasted yesterday. I dropped some off at a friends coffee shop. In a few days he will brew it and tell me what he thinks. We believe my roasts are better than what we buy.

They seem to be after the shoutbox. They have been removed. I don't see anything in the forums.

Tastes/Aromas Flavor Wheel
New thread for Scotts post concerning "Tastes, Aromas" versus chemical compounds.

Can someone move these posts to this thread?

There are 2 parts to the flavour wheel

However this site is a beauty that lists many smells and a great resource

Also important is the tongue

Two taste chemical tidbits:

There is another taste that's been added to the four we learned in grade school, pictured above. It is called umami. Its a flavor produced by foods high in protein. Think meat broth or unsalted soy sauce.

There are hundreds of chemicals in coffee. One that highly influences its flavor is trigonelline. It helps to give coffee its bitter taste. As coffee is roasted, trigonelline decomposes. That's why dark roast coffees are mellowly than lighter roasts. Lengthening the roast by drawing out the profile will result in less trigonelline and alter the flavor.

Now this thread is up to date. I couldn't figure out how to move actual posts.

Tom and Maria's Tiny Joy has this issue as their focal point this month.

You can see it at Sweet Maria's.

Thanks for posting this flavor wheel; very helpful to me as a newbie. I found this narrative to go along with it, a pdf file:
So many beans; so little time....
