A Step-by-Step Guide to CTAPS

Everyone wants “good” coffee, but “good” can mean different things to everyone.

Coffee has many specific qualities. Its taste, mouthfeel, acidity and balance shape your preference, and that varies from person to person. What does not change however, is that the best coffee beans are those suited to fit your taste!

That’s why Newbeans Coffee created the Coffee Tasting and Profiling System (CTAPS) – a unique tool to help you identify the perfect blend of coffee based on your preference, and key attributes of taste, aroma, body and acidity.

Here’s how CTAPS can help you select or make the best coffee beans for your taste:

Learning more about your coffee blend

For the uninitiated, coffee blending is the art of merging coffee to precisely match a taste, by choosing coffees that complement and enhance each other. For instance, you may love the deep rich flavour of the Sulawesi, but wish it had the bright, citrus acidity of the Kenyan – blending coffee makes that possible.

Our coffee artisans have years of experience in discovering and fusing the unique qualities of two or more coffees to create a new coffee that is one-of-a-kind.

What the CTAPS does is provide a vivid description of these coffee blends, so you can virtually taste it even before you purchase it.
