Every coffee producing countries grows both great coffees and poor coffees, it is depending on the coffee grades. For us coffee drinkers, acidity can be an easy and great indicator of quality.

Coffee’s acidity gives coffee interesting flavours, these flavours do make coffee to have subtle floral or fruitiness to it, best part, it is all-natural occurring from the coffee cherry itself.

Quality good acidity is an indication of well-grown coffee fruit, it should be comfortable to drink, with hint of fruity and should taste very subtle in the cup. It is enjoyable and healthier for you.

 A bad acidity is an indication of lower grade coffee fruit that has poor nutrients or defective, these usually tastes overpoweringly sour, unbalanced, and harsh. It is not comfortable to drink, and it is also bad for your health.

Due to difference in uniqueness of soil, climate and cultivating culture of each country, coffee flavour profile is unique from all around the world.

Light roasted coffee is appreciated among coffee connoisseurs as the coffee origin flavours can be savoured in the cup.
