Coffee Lingo: Mouthfeel


Mouthfeel: (n.)  well…it’s the way something feels in your mouth.

There are a bunch of words used to describe coffee that are downright goofy. “Mouthfeel” is one of them, but at least it’s pretty straightforward: it really just means how something (coffee, wine, etc.) makes the inside of your mouth feel, physically. Sometimes you’ll get an effervescent, tingly sensation from certain geisha, or a full-bodied Colombian might have a silky, buttery sensation. Just like wines, certain coffees can be “tannic,” giving your taste buds a drying feeling. It’s not so much about taste, but sensation.

How is your coffee making your mouth feel today?

  2. Then he has a doppelganger! Thanks!
