The aroma type “Floral & light”

A refreshing and elegant cup of coffee - the flavor combination “Floral & Light” scores with its relaxed acidity and natural floral sweetness, especially among filter fans. We'll explain to you where the characteristic taste comes from and which coffees you absolutely have to try if you like these flavors.

The origin

How the origin influences the taste of your floral and light coffee.

Typically, beans with this flavor profile come from countries in East Africa or Central and South America. Beans from Ethiopia, for example, often have floral tea notes, a subtle sweetness and pronounced acidity, making them a popular choice for filter coffee fans.

📍 Typical countries of origin: Ethiopia, Kenya, Colombia

The processing

How the coffee beans are processed influences their taste.

The preparation of the coffee from the cherry to the dried green bean also affects the taste of your coffee.

Different methods are used for beans with the “Floral & Light” aroma type. Both washed coffees and beans that are processed using the natural process can have this aroma type. “Honey processing” is also sometimes used. The coffee cherries are only partially washed, which means that the peel is removed, but the soft, sticky pulp remains on the bean.

  • Typical processing: Washed

The roasting

Roasting also plays a big role when it comes to the taste of your coffee.

During the roasting process, chemical reactions are triggered that promote the formation of aroma compounds.

For floral and light notes, the coffee beans are usually light roasted, giving the coffee a light body with a floral sweetness and pronounced natural acidity. The lighter the bean is roasted, the better the refreshing, tangy aromas come through.

By the way, floral and light aromas are also particularly good for cold brew - perfect for hot days.
