為什麼好的咖啡豆比較甜 Why good coffee beans make naturally sweet coffee
Coffee is not bitter but sweet, is it true? You can taste the natural pure sweetness in a good cup of specialty coffee. Where did this sweetness come from?
The impression of coffee has always been bitter, as long as there is coffee roasting aroma, the purpose of drinking coffee is achieved. But in fact, coffee is fruit and sweet, and can retain the sweetness under professional roasting, and add many sweet aromas, thereby increasing the overall sweetness perception. The sweetness of the coffee is not added, which should be hard to imagine.
This reminds me of the Justin Coffee’s motto:
“Coffee bean is a miracle nourished by sunshine and earth. Justin Coffee brings the miracle to your daily lives - the best coffee with gratitude.”
Coffee grows in sunny, fertile soil, and accumulates many sugars and various nutrients under photosynthesis. The ripening speed and processing method of coffee berries also affect the amount of sweet substances in coffee beans. Coffee that matures slowly has a higher relative sweetness. Therefore, the higher the altitude, the slower the growth, and the sweeter substances accumulated. In terms of bean varieties, the sweetness of Arabica beans of specialty coffee is almost twice as high as the sugar content of Robusta beans of commercial beans. In addition, specialty coffees are all hand-picked with ripe coffee red cherry fruits, and the sweetness of naturally mature fruits is higher.
From the SCA (Specialty Coffee Society) Flavor Wheel of specialty coffee, we can see many sweet flavors, such as: vanilla, brown sugar, floral, berry, citrus fruit, etc. Flavors are all from green coffee beans’ various nutrients (including sugar and protein, etc.), which are thermally degraded into various odor molecular structures under roasting, producing flavors similar to various aromas, and increasing our perception of sweetness. Good coffee beans have highly sweet substances, which balance the various tastes of coffee. With the sweetness as base, the acidity is pleasant, the structures are clear, and the flavor is full and bright.
