Topic: How to taste the Blueberries or ? (8 msgs / 157 lines)

Today I am finally tasting the berry taste from the gifted coffee.  To get
there I opened a can of blueberries and had them over my muffin this
morning.  Then  had the coffee.  With the blue berry taste right there in
the bowl I could indeed taste blueberry.  The coffee wasnąt tasting
different but the way I named what I was tasting did.  I got on the same
page so to speak.
It lead me to a teaching thought???  As Tom roast a different coffee every
week maybe we could all order his coffee and then as a group talk about wha=
we are tasting.  It is the best way for someone like me to learn from all o=
the best tasters with out paying to have them come to Wyoming.  In order fo=
it to work well we would need some of those that have cupped a lot or at
least have a good sense of taste.  (Les, Mike, Jim etc. etc.).
Anyone have thoughts on this?

this is completely lame, but yesterday I did a yama vacuum brew of a 
Kenya, and after the coffee cooled I was amazed to take a sip and get 
amazingly clear blueberry notes. i had a mental lapse actually ... i 
had just ate a big handful of blueberries! doh!

I've had the same experience except I had just had a drink of
Orangina.  Wow, never noticed the citrus flavours in this particular
coffee before!

I did the same thing a couple weeks ago - I had just finished breakfast 
of blueberry granola and was thrilled with my first sip of coffee right 
after eating - I was so happy! My 6-year old was wondering what the old 
man was up to dancing around the kitchen.
Therefore - If you want guaranteed blueberries, eat some and drink your

I would love to cup coffee, to be able to attend some local cupping to try =
and develop these taste buds for a huge range of coffee.
I think cupping is one of those gifts you have or you do not!
just my two cents.

Thanks for the laugh.  This does bring up some interesting points, however. 
How does what you have eaten, drank, or smelled recently affect the flavor 
of coffee?  What do you eat while cupping to clear your palate?  What 
coffees go with what foods?  Anyone care to comment?

I've never cupped coffee, but when judging a beer competition we
usually nibble matzoh crackers with a few sips of water between beers.
I know of nothing more bland than matzoh.
