The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Using their skills of smell, taste, care and experience, thirteen distinguished tasters who specialize in coffee will compete in the third national coffee assessors faceoff, which will be held in the offices of the Specialty Coffee Association of Costa Rica (SCACR ) March 31, and April 1 and 2, 2014.

This Association is the country representative of the World Coffee Events Institution that organizes the World Cup Tasters Championship, which will be held in Melbourne, Australia this year during the MICE fair from May 15 to 18.

Within these participants is the 2013 Champion, Gabriel Céspedes, who at the last World Cup in Nice, France, made it to fifth place among more than 50 participants.

Some of the most important things when it comes to tasting the coffee is the fragrance and aroma, such as floral notes, citrus and peach.

The bowl cleaning is one of the key points here as well.

The assessor must have good personal habits such as no smoking because it destroys the taste buds and nose, which creates a greater chance of losing the sensitivity to detect flavors.
