  • I'm Dylan Edwards and I'm a coffee
  • expert it is actually horrific ly
  • terrible
  • [Music]
  • with these two coffees the difference is
  • starkly obvious coffee a has a really
  • dark glossy surface it even smells
  • somewhat pungent just holding it
  • whereas coffee B is cinnamon II in color
  • it sort of has a silver skin intact in
  • each of the beans so it's definitely a
  • light roast it's not necessarily a
  • direct indication of price difference it
  • is a personal preference some people
  • just really enjoy dark roasted coffee
  • versus a light roasted coffee however a
  • dark roasted coffee generally is going
  • to mask a lot of the flavors in the
  • coffee itself kind of like a heavy sauce
  • it's gonna sort of just cover up all the
  • sweetness and all the inherent
  • characteristics of the coffee and really
  • impart a Carboni sort of smoky flavor
  • whereas with a light roast the nuances
  • of the coffee the flaws the good
  • attributes and the bad ones really do
  • shine through with a light roast you're
  • looking at more often than not a higher
  • quality coffee and with a dark roast
  • it's a little bit hard to say what the
  • quality might be we will of course brew
  • them and taste them and then see from
  • there so the first thing I'm doing is
  • just rinsing these filters the reason
  • behind that is a lot of paper filters
  • will actually impart a bit of a papery
  • flavor in your cups you want to really
  • wash out some of that flavor just
  • scarred it before you bring your coffee
  • so you got a really clean the coffee we
  • have our filters rinsed we're gonna
  • grind our coffee
  • first thing I always do is smell them
  • part of that is heat masks flavor you
  • don't want to drink your coffee that's
  • piping hot not only did not burn your
  • tongue but also because it's really hard
  • to taste that's why if you go to a gas
  • station when you're on a road trip and
  • you have a really piping hot gas station
  • cup of coffee you could probably get
  • half of it down without noticing it but
  • as it cools off and it's sitting in your
  • cup holder it's gonna taste awful coffee
  • a is a definitely got like a really
  • molasses e texture like almost the
  • experience of having raw sugar on your
  • tongue it kind of leaves one with like
  • an almost bitter sweet kind of sweetness
  • the acidity is extremely muted here what
  • I'm getting is overall like a very
  • velvety mouthfeel general kind of
  • OneNote Wow after drinking coffee a
  • coffee B is like drinking fruit juice
  • there's like clear kind of stone fruit
  • acidity it almost tastes like a sweet
  • peach kind of nectarine flavor probably
  • wondering why I'm slurping really loudly
  • slurping the coffee taking some air in
  • with your your sip is actually a great
  • way to sort of aspirate your palate into
  • to incorporate lots of air as you're
  • tasting we actually taste a lot with our
  • nasal passage so as we're bringing air
  • in when we're tasting we really activate
  • our olfactory sense and we really
  • incorporate our sensory ability to taste
  • I would say that sample B is the more
  • expensive of the two just based on the
  • transparency and the clarity of the
  • sweetness press sample a is most likely
  • a
  • let's see
  • [Music]
  • hey wallah with darker roasts the coffee
  • itself isn't necessarily inferior
  • however more often than not the dark of
  • the roast the less and less you can
  • actually taste the origin character of
  • the coffee with coffee a like I said I'm
  • not necessarily certain that that
  • quality of the beans are inferior but I
  • can say that I cannot taste the origin
  • character at all really just tasting a
  • very caramelized very carbonic flavor
  • that gives me a general impression of
  • roast flavors whereas sample B is a very
  • fresh very fruited very clear crisp
  • flavor profile it definitely tastes like
  • a unique flavor of origin I see pretty
  • stark difference between a and B B is a
  • fairly uniform looking being it has
  • really whole clean kind of appearance to
  • it the roast is a bit lighter all of the
  • beans are fully intact they're a very
  • uniform shape and size as sample a here
  • there are some very misshapen beans and
  • very small bits broken bits or even some
  • of these pale colored blonde pieces and
  • and beans themselves which we refer to
  • as Quakers which are basically under
  • ripe coffee seeds that are picked too
  • early I'm gonna say this is a specialty
  • coffee and this is a commercial-grade
  • coffee just based on a beer
  • really really bitter
  • almost kind of sour as well honestly the
  • aroma has kind of gone from just a rusty
  • smell to now it almost smells like kind
  • of a wet newspaper it's very bitter I
  • instantly want to put a lot of sugar in
  • this coffee this coffee is clear it's
  • sweet it's a exciting coffee has really
  • great sweetness has really good flavors
  • this is a kind of coffee that I'd really
  • want to just enjoy on its own black this
  • coffee is the kind of coffee I'd expect
  • on most flights and I'd really only
  • asked for it if I was super desperate
  • let's see how much they are
  • [Music]
  • Wow big difference
  • needless to say these are very different
  • coffees every step behind this coffee
  • had to have been carefully managed for
  • this cup to be so sweetened so clear
  • this coffee is something that probably
  • grew at a variety of altitudes it's
  • grown with out of focus it was probably
  • not even dried carefully or milled
  • carefully it probably came from a very
  • voluminous rose tree that was really
  • looking to shave cost and to really just
  • produce a drinkable caffeine beverage
  • and and not something that was really
  • delicious these two samples are fairly
  • average in appearance one of them has a
  • slightly more developed roast I can see
  • that there's a little bit of oil on the
  • surface which is an indication that was
  • roasted a little bit longer
  • whereas sample a does still have the
  • silver skin intact which is some of the
  • cell material of the coffee seed this is
  • more indicative of a lighter and medium
  • roast
  • however these roasts aren't different
  • enough that I would lump one into the
  • bucket of dark roast and light roast
  • these two coffees are probably of a
  • similar caliber however I imagined
  • sample a is probably just a little bit
  • better we're gonna have to taste them to
  • find out the first thing that I'm doing
  • when I brew a cup of coffees I'm I'm
  • gonna hit each cup with a bit of hot
  • water and I'm gonna look for some
  • off-gassing to happen it looks like one
  • of these is already off gassing quite a
  • bit more than the other one to me that
  • indicates a fresh roast this coffee here
  • is bubbling up you can see multiple
  • bubbles still coming up probably 30
  • seconds into this room now this one here
  • is just sort of sunk in it's already
  • sort of stopped any sort of action it's
  • probably a little bit more of a stale
  • roast so fresh froze bubbles it really
  • causes what we call the bloom and that
  • that is because there is gas trapped
  • inside freshly roasted coffee part of
  • the roasting process is putting the
  • coffee through a really really wide
  • array of chemical reactions during the
  • roast and what happens in that roasting
  • process is gas
  • are physically trapped inside the beat
  • slowly over time they will leak out of
  • the coffee bean however they do
  • expediently leak out once the coffee is
  • ground this is one of the reasons you
  • really want to seek out whole bean
  • freshly roasted coffee it's gonna be a
  • lot more lively and sweet and vibrant
  • when you get it and brewed it out
  • sample amy has like sort of a crisp
  • almost like apple like acidity really
  • refreshing really clear it's actually a
  • very sweet cup of coffee it has sort of
  • almost a sugary character to it it
  • reminds me of rooibos tea yeah it's very
  • crisp very light very fresh with a
  • mouth-watering acidity the predominant
  • note here is a very tobacco leaf flavor
  • very kind of bitter earthy flavors that
  • are almost like heavy on the palate
  • leaving one with like a heavy kind of
  • bitter aftertaste overall it's a kind of
  • a dull experience that that acidity that
  • I was talking about in cup a I'm getting
  • almost little to none of that type of
  • acidity at all really I'm experiencing
  • mostly a very big bodied cup of coffee
  • something that you know it would
  • definitely take a lot of milk and sugar
  • quite well but on its own is it's not a
  • very enjoyable cup of coffee at all
  • based upon what I'm tasting I think a is
  • definitely the more expensive coffee and
  • I was clear expressive flavor vibrant
  • acidity good sweetness it's very
  • balanced it's very crisp coffee B again
  • is is very tobacco a very tired very
  • muted in terms of its flavor overall it
  • just leaves kind of a heavy bitter
  • flavor on the tongue I'm gonna assume
  • that this is a commercial-grade coffee
  • and it is the less expensive of the two
  • we'll have to see
  • [Music]
  • based on these prices I think it's fair
  • to say this is probably bottom of the
  • shelf grocery store Best Buy coffee
  • whereas $28 a pound you're probably
  • gonna find this at your specialty coffee
  • shop
  • something that's freshly roasted in
  • small batches when you're looking for
  • coffee in your grocery store you really
  • want to look for coffee that has a
  • roasted on date not a best buy date
  • roasted on really gives you a sense of
  • whether that coffee is fresh you really
  • want to look for coffee that's no older
  • than then two or three weeks past it's
  • roast eight if you want to enjoy it adds
  • peak whereas coffee that has a best buy
  • date and no roasted on date will really
  • not give you any sense of how fresh it
  • is
  • that type of coffee is most likely
  • commercial-grade it's a probably cheaper
  • and there's a reason we see all sorts of
  • varieties when we're traveling the world
  • and sourcing coffees varieties just like
  • in apples or in wine and coffee we also
  • have specific types of seeds that
  • produce specific types of plants if
  • you're ever at your farmers market and
  • you've seen the various varieties and
  • apples available for sale the same thing
  • is the case with coffee when we go to
  • specific organs like Colombia like
  • Panama like Guatemala we will encounter
  • specific varieties of coffee I see two
  • dishes which have very uniform beans in
  • them coffee a has really elongated beans
  • which is an indication of a few exotic
  • varieties that I'm aware of the bean
  • itself looks a lot like sort of an
  • Eastern Ethiopian bean of being from
  • Harar or a bean from even Yirgacheffe
  • will have sort of an elongated shape
  • like that whereas this bean over here
  • has a very uniform sort of smaller kind
  • of more round oval shape based on the
  • way that these coffees look I'm gonna
  • guess that coffee a has probably a very
  • unique variety behind it it is most
  • likely a Geisha or a pak'ma'ra variety
  • something that is very unique and exotic
  • whereas coffee B being kind of a dense
  • smaller more more compact bean
  • it's most likely a common variety like a
  • bourbon or cat au revoir
  • we're gonna have to taste them to find
  • out soak up these was really fresh it's
  • really satisfying has a pretty big body
  • sort of has a character of a really
  • juicy kind of caramel soaked apple
  • flavor but overall also just a classic
  • flavor sample a sampling is so
  • distinctive it's got a really really
  • apricot forward kind of flavor profile
  • it almost tastes like a like an Earl
  • Grey tea just doused with apricot juice
  • super light super crisp it's a really
  • exotic and really unique cup of coffee
  • based on tasting these two coffees I'm
  • fairly certain that this is a Geisha or
  • something very exotic maybe maybe a
  • variety I haven't even heard of in any
  • event it has such clarity and such like
  • pronounced clear distinctive singular
  • flavors that I would assume that it's
  • much more expensive than this cup this
  • cup cup B is still very sweet very
  • satisfying it has tons of fresh acidity
  • however the flavors on the whole are
  • more of a caramel II kind of classic
  • predictable coffee experience in
  • comparison to cup a let's see what they
  • are
  • [Music]
  • whoa yep that is a rare variety of
  • coffee at 86 dollars a pound and this
  • one isn't bad either at $30.00 ago based
  • on the price point I'm gonna say this is
  • most likely a Geisha coffee geisha trees
  • are extremely scarce in the world the
  • fact that this coffee is so sweet and so
  • clean makes me think it's probably from
  • one of the most famous farms in Panama
  • producing geisha however I of course do
  • not know this coffee is fantastic - this
  • is the kind of coffee when you're when
  • you're going to splurge when you're
  • you're gonna spend a weekend at home and
  • you really just want to treat yourself
  • you buy a fantastic single single
  • producer a lot or a great coffee from
  • your local roaster that it they're proud
  • of it's probably gonna taste a little
  • bit more like this and cost a bit more
  • in this range with these two coffees
  • it's pretty hard to tell which of them
  • is the more expensive of the tube coffee
  • a looks like it may be a single varietal
  • lot just based on the the oblong
  • elongated shape of the coffee looks like
  • it might be a more exotic variety
  • however coffee B and coffee a are both
  • really uniformed
  • they have no broken bits they have no
  • Quakers it really looked like
  • high-quality well processed coffees both
  • of these coffees look so high-quality
  • that I look forward to tasting them and
  • seeing what the differences
  • both of these coffees were really good
  • they're both very expressive they're
  • both very sweet it's hard to say which
  • of these is is the better I think it
  • makes sense to to continue tasting them
  • in fact I'm gonna break out a cupping
  • spoon a cupping spoon is a spoon that we
  • use for tasting coffee professionally
  • and it just helps us aspirate the coffee
  • when we slurp it it allows us to
  • incorporate some air really spray that
  • coffee all across our palate
  • I'm taking a couple more sips I'm
  • realizing that cup a is actually
  • distinguished ibly more juicy it's it's
  • got a lot of citrus really really
  • leaving me with a super crisp super
  • lasting sort of juicy flavor in my mouth
  • with cup B I'm getting a lot more sort
  • of a general flavor profile a more of an
  • impression rather than a clear distilled
  • flavour that to me makes me think that
  • club a is probably the more expensive
  • however I imagine that they're probably
  • pretty close let's see
  • [Music]
  • aha
  • Sookie takeaways cup a is most likely
  • extremely specific probably down to a
  • single farm probably maybe even down to
  • a single varietal from a single farm
  • grown at a specific altitude
  • whereas cuppy more of a general flavor
  • profile really good really enjoyable but
  • getting more of an impression and less
  • of a singular flavor experience that to
  • me indicates probably something that was
  • grown in a general region not
  • necessarily as expressive as cup a and
  • thus probably more of like a regional
  • lot type of coffee the great thing about
  • this is one can enjoy fantastic coffees
  • that are traceable to a region well also
  • for a little more money
  • enjoy coffees that are really traceable
  • down to a single farm and get really
  • specific with the tasting experience
  • [Music]
  • while you may not need all this
  • information when you're just brewing
  • your morning cup of coffee what I hope
  • you will take away from this is that you
  • can get well roasted freshly roasted
  • traceable coffee for less than $30 a
  • pound which is out sprouts better value
  • than a good bottle of wine at your local
  • wine shop
