Flavour wheel

We believe coffee to be personal at eightpointnine, and the coffee flavour wheel shows the great diversity of flavours coffee can produce, helping to explain the rationale of personalising your blend to suit your individual taste preferences.

eightpointnine coffee flavour wheel

The coffee flavour wheel has been a major part of the coffee industry for over 20 years. It has become an iconic symbol of the coffee trade, and almost every specialist coffee shop in the country will have it displayed somewhere within its walls.

The most recognised version of this flavour wheel was developed by the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) and was originally published in 1995. This publication has since been regarded as the industry guide when it comes to understanding and describing coffee flavour. For the first time in it’s 21-year history, an updated version of the wheel was launched in 2016.
