A taste for coffee.

A recent study by Italian scientists has been carried out. The research has revealed that the taste of coffee may be improved by drinkers who take large slurps rather than small sips. But why? Well, the scientists say that the larger slurps allow the coffee to release more aroma, compared to drinking slowly.

The difference described as a ‘higher aroma release’ from a larger sip volume, means that more saliva is created in the mouth of the drinker. Further research shows that it also allows more aroma to reach receptors in the nose.

In addition to this, the scientists from the University of Naples referred to previous research that discusses how smell and taste are related and how they can affect one another.

But what do you think? Will this change the way we drink coffee?
