What are Tasting Notes in Coffee?

There are many tasting notes, or flavor notes, in coffee. In fact, scientists have discovered over 1,000 chemical compounds in coffee that lead to many of the flavors we know and love. They can't all be listed here, but the coffee flavor wheel does a great job laying out the different flavors and aromas you'll find in coffee.
