Introduction to the harmony of the sensory experience

Module information

In this module we will dive into the exciting world of coffee as a sensory experience. In the course of two hours, the senses «taste and aroma» are roused and sensitised. Along with theoretical knowledge, several practical exercises are also offered in order to really experience the harmony between taste, aroma, mouthfeel and balance.

Module contents

In this basic module, we begin with the introduction to the sensory experience by refining our senses of taste and smell while learning theoretical knowledge. The difference between taste and aroma is clarified and the perception thereof is trained with many hands-on exercises. What do the mouth and tongue perceive, and what happens orthonasally and retronasally during a coffee tasting?

A coffee tasting with coffees from various growing areas, with various types of preparation, will follow the above-mentioned theoretical and practical components. As a result, the concepts that are learned can be implemented in practice directly.
