Did you ever wonder why some coffee just tastes better than others? Well, there are a lot of reasons for this phenomenon! Today we’ll discuss one of those factors, the coffee grade or classification.

Coffee is actually much like beef. In the Beef world, the higher the grade the more tender the meat. In the coffee world, the higher the grade the smoother the coffee!

Unlike meat, coffee is graded according to number of defects. Samples are taken and analyzed and a grade results for the batch of coffee.
