The tastes of the world

International coffee regions tend to share similar tastes, aromas and other characteristics. Here are the major regions of the coffee world classified into four groups: South America, Central America, Africa and Indonesia.

South America

South America countries tend to have slightly heavier bodies than Central American coffee’s, with slightly peculiar aromas and overtones. They do share the same crisp bold taste, and generally share the high acidity. Some examples include:

Colombian – LAS GALERAS (NARINO)

Colombian – SUPREMO DECAF

Brazil – IPANEMA FAZENDA RIO VERDE

Central America

Central American coffees are generally light bodied (the body refers to the thickness or mouth feeling in the mouth). These coffees actually feel lighter in your mouth than the heavier Indonesian coffee’s. They are usually said to have a crisp or bold taste, which refers to the somewhat sharp punch of Central America coffee’s and relatively high acidity. Some examples include:

Mexico – FINCA GUADALUPE ZAJU

Costa Rica – FINCA AQUIARES

Honduras – FINCA LA FERNANDA

Africa

The original place of all coffee, Africa’s coffee is quite exceptional with sweet, fruity, spicy and exotic flavours. This coffee is often sought for its unique aromas and overtones, however those new to flavours may find some of them odd tasting. The only way to really get a feel of them is to try them. Some examples include:

Tanzania – MLIMANI NGARASHI AA

Ethiopia – YIRGACHEFFE KOCHERE

Far East (Indonesia/Papua New Guinea)

Indonesian coffee has a long finish, very heavy body, full flavour and low acidity. The coffee grown here is highly prized for its taste and smooth finish. Examples include:

Papua New Guinea – MOANTI
