This meticulous process of matching coffee blends for private labels involves:
- Cataloging sample submissions of the blend to be matched, including packaging materials, production codes, and manufacturing dates.
- Testing and analysis of the blend’s visual characteristics and cupping, involving evaluation of acidity, body, aroma, and flavor. The resulting flavor profile identifies the type of coffee bean and probable countries of origin.
- Physical analysis to determine package weight,roast color, grind, moisture, and residual oxygen.
- The creation of sample roasts by expert cuppers,who continuously test until an actual match is brewed and compared to the control sample.
After this extremely difficult process has been completed,consumers that are already familiar with a label’s product will receive the same great taste they expect in every cup without being able to taste a difference.
