The aroma type “Nutty & Chocolatey”

Many coffee fans are constantly looking for new and exciting flavors. However, a flavor combination that always causes enthusiasm is nuts and chocolate. 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 origin influences the taste of your nutty and chocolatey coffee.

Typically, beans with this flavor profile come from countries in Central and South America. Beans from Colombia, for example, often have notes of roasted nuts, almonds, and a subtle chocolate sweetness, making them a popular choice for coffee fans who appreciate these flavors.

📍 Typical countries of origin: Colombia, Brazil, Mexico

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 “Nutty & Chocolatey” aroma type. Both washed coffees and beans that are prepared using the natural process can have this aroma type.

Naturals are a little “sweeter” while washed coffees taste a little “clearer”.

  • Typical processing: Washed & Natural

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 the nutty and chocolatey notes, a medium roast is often the best choice. A roast that is too light can result in the roasted flavors not being sufficiently developed, while a roast that is too dark can quickly become overwhelmingly bitter.

Our brewing recommendation for the “Nutty & Chocolatey” aroma type is the French Press.
