Welcome Alix Nathan, an expert roaster who owns and operates the Mark Spencer Hotel in Portland, Oregon. Kenneth and Alix discuss how temperature impacts the flavor and, therefore, your enjoyment of your coffee. This episode will enable you to identify and create the correct brewing and drinking temperatures for the style of coffee you like to drink.
They cover the impact it has on the speed at which the brewing process takes place, atmospheric pressure, and the way coffee aroma and the various flavor profiles are released at different temperature points. Why drinking your coffee when it is piping hot means you are missing out on some of the aroma and taste profiles, is also explained.
‘Coffee has over 1000 compounds that affect aroma and taste. ´
‘For lighter roast, you may want to brew on the higher end of the temp range … for darker roast, you may want to brew at the lower end.’
‘Where you really start to enjoy the coffee is a few minutes in, when the coffee's had time to cool off a little.’
