Coffee Talk Episode 3 - Taste Profiles

Episode 3 – Taste Profiles

In Episode 3 of Coffee Talk we speak again to Christopher and John, the manager and master roaster respectively at Glasgow’s Gordon Street Coffee. This week we’re finding out about coffee culture in the UK from Christopher and speaking to John about flavours and taste profiles of different coffee beans.



Among the topics we discuss with in this episode are:

• How coffee culture has developed in the UK over the past 15-20 years;

• The influence of big coffee chains on that development;

• How that culture might develop further in the coming years;

• Which flavours might be easiest for an uneducated palate to discern;

• How to craft a good coffee blend;


• Whether any particular flavours are more commercially popular than others.


We’d love to hear from you on these issues and with any other thoughts or questions you might have, so find us on Twitter and Facebook or just comment below!
