The Victor crew came across this video about coffee called “How ‘Bad’ Coffee Took Over America”. Taste in coffee is subjective but there are people who say it isn’t. There is coffee certification test that tasters take.
In a process known as “cupping” they taste the coffee and give it a rating. The rating is based on fragrance, aroma, flavor, aftertaste, acidity, body, overall impressions, sweetness, balance, and the clean cup. If the coffee scores 80% or higher it is called a specialty grade coffee. Anything below is considered bad coffee.
Coffee drinking in America dates back to the Boston Tea Party, where drinking tea after that was considered unpatriotic.
