There are two choices when defining good coffee. What the professionals say and what you like.
CoffeeDNA provides resources to know what the professionals say, so you order like a professional, use the right terminology and can judge the quality of barista-made coffee.
Even though the professionals have perfected their cup, what you like may be different. We help you find the perfect cup for you.
Your Preference + Our Knowledge
= Awesome Coffee
What makes a good coffee to a barista?
CoffeeDNA teaches you everything the industry calls a great cup of coffee.

Also how to add extras that really make a coffee sing!
How do you like your coffee? Strong? With milk? Do you prefer a sweeter cup, with whipped cream and sugary treats?
Understand your choices: in purchasing coffee, in a cafe environment, and at home. Find out more about what you like, what you are buying as well as discovering methods and flavours.
No one can tell you that what you think is good, is wrong for you. CoffeeDNA is here to help you find the perfect way to caffeinate your way!
Black and white coffee is not as simple as it sounds...
What is the difference between the array of black coffees available to order at your local cafe? And what are all the white coffees? Find out about the distinguishing features each cup has as you look closer into what makes a coffee black or white, and explore blends that don't quite fit into either side.
To order your perfect cup at a cafe, you want to take into consideration the strength of the coffee, size of the coffee, the temperature, type of milk, sides you can order, and all the extras.
When you're ordering do you know the difference between:
single, double, and triple shot?
Different type of dairy and non dairy milk?
All the extras you can ask for to enhance your coffee experience?
All the quirky technical terms to make your cup of coffee perfect?
The first step in making a good coffee, starts with your beans. To choose the right beans for you there are four aspects of "coffee beans" you need to think about:
Type, Origin (Profile), Roasts (L.M.D), and Blends. Each of these will make a big difference to your coffee. From the aroma all the way through to the aftertaste.
Let's help you understand and find how to enrich the best qualities so that you can create a perfectly balanced coffee for you.
So many choices... what should you choose?: V60, Syphon, Plunger, Stove Top, Drip, Cold Brew, Ice Brew... and of course Espresso?
Enjoy watching coffee being brewed or prefer short, sweet and need it yesterday?
Your gadgets and brew methods change the flavour. Do you want: bold flavours, vibrant aroma, full bodied kick, deliciously tangy or laid back and smooth?
