Learn How to find different types of Coffee on the Coffunity app?
Opinion: When it comes to coffee, there’s more than it meets the eye. For the uninitiated, there are different flavor profiles each bean has that defines its characteristics. Coffunity (a Wordplay between Coffee + Community, get it?) vows to help you identify your best cup of coffee. The app has insights into different types of coffee and where to find them.
Being a popular beverage, Coffee for most people is part of their morning ritual as soon they wake up. Until early last year, I was accustomed to the regular instant coffee and the likes of it. I was introduced to the Farm to Cup concept by a friend who walked me through the stages of choosing (I wasn’t even aware that the Coffee beans were green before roasting), roasting, grinding and a whole lot of brewing methods before I became enlightened. Not many of us can say that we have that one friend who knows way too much about coffees, right?
In that case, Coffunity could be that friend for you.
Coffunity houses an ever-growing knowledge base of Coffee beans, brewing methods and a community of Coffee literates who would be happy to discuss and share their experiences with you.
