How important is the terroir for coffee ?
Find the perfect aroma is the dream of all roaster. It's a daily mission because they roast the coffee every day. But there is not a perfect aroma, there are millions of them. It depends on a lot of settings from the production until the consumption.
Indeed, there are more than 200 varieties of arabica and according to the altitude, the heat, soil composition, the shading and other settings, the taste of the coffee will not be the same.
Then the process can be different, we can dry coffee beans with or without the pulp. It will gave a different taste to the coffee.
We call them natural coffee (with the pulp) or washed coffee (without). Natural coffee are generally stronger than the others. But there is no bitterness.
Then, one of the most important step to make a good coffee is, the roasting process. It transform the coffee because a the Maillard reaction to produce the characteristic flavor of the coffee. It gives also the color of the coffee which become brown.
The final step is also very important, it's the extraction of the coffee with water. There is different way to make coffee. And with the same coffee, according to the coffee maker you use, it will give a different taste.
When someone drinks fresh coffee, he may not go back to instant coffee because it tast so great. -Andrew Stotz
