On taste-making.

On taste-making.

I recently re-discovered the Specialty Coffee Association of America Flavor Wheel, and it occured to me: taste has a direct relationship with vocabulary.  Between our bites and criticisms, we distinguish what we eat by how we describe each mouthful. Logically, then, the more words we aquire to identify our reactions to foods, the better it will taste!

Side-note: There's a flowchart hiding in this flavor wheel, Graphic Designers! Please recreate this as a personality test where I get to describe myself as piquant.
