“Oh, I just really love Colombian coffee!” “I can’t live without my household stock of fresh Ethiopian coffee grounds.” “Excuse me, do you have any single-origin Indonesian coffee beans available?”
Coffee connoisseur talk. Bean there, overheard that.
As a caffeine junkie myself, I think I’ve got enough basic knowledge to be able to differentiate a good, aromatic cuppa with just the right kick from a bad one with all froth but no substance. But with the vast array of caffeine terms and tricks out there, it’s easy for a coffee simpleton such as I to get lost in a latte of that bean noise.
So, what’s the fuss with these beans from Nicaragua? Or why the clamor for Indian coffee by hardcore drinkers?
