Here we have tips and detailed information about the most common coffee blends. Coffee grows in many different regions of the world. That is why some coffees are known for full-bodied coffees and others for their deep flavor or aroma. In fact, everything that happens to the Coffee tree, weather conditions throughout the life of the plant, and throughout the growing season altitude; impacts the flavor of the coffee it produces. While the aroma of one may inspire poetry, its flavor may be noon too special; no one coffee will be considered “perfect” by everyone. On this site, you will find a brief description of the taste characteristics of the four major coffee growing regions of the world. Of course, there are much more different coffee blends but these are a good start for a beginning.
