How to choose between the Light, Balanced and Bold
The flavor is the perception of tastes while the coffee is in the mouth. For example, a coffee might taste mildly of chocolate or caramel. The flavor of the coffee is separate from its aroma, you need to pay attention to what the taste buds can detect. You can put your description together considering these factors. Begin with the acidity, followed by the aroma and close with the coffee's flavor. For example, you might describe coffee as follows: "The coffee has a crisp, bright flavor, with subtle hints of citrus and rich chocolates."
Light Flavored coffee brings out the utmost origin character of the particular coffees. This coffee has crisp acidity, a mellow body, and bright flavors including tasting notes of chocolate, cherries, and caramel.
Balanced Flavored Coffee is a compromise that often brings out some of the best flavors with tasting notes including sweet, citric, caramel and a bright finish with an occasional hint of milk chocolate. This flavor often brings out a balanced complete coffee.
Bold Flavored Coffee can give you bold, stewy, rich, darkness. The taste converges towards those of tobacco and herbs. Very bold bodied, best for those with a complex palate.
