  • Acidity Curve

    Hi all
    Just any observation - has anyone else found that with many beans, the acidity seems to peak at about 7 days? Seems to be milder early on, then increase up to this point, then tail off heading past 10 days… just an interesting development I've been seeing more lately…
    Just me?

    Yep. Early on it can be hollow/grassy/woody tasting. Then past around ten days it can balance out.

      That's interesting
      I've found that I tend to get much more of the varietal notes early on (3-5 days post) like the berries / citrus / vanilla with a milder acidity. Then about 7 days the acidity can tend to take over a little. But then if they last to 10 days or so, it smooths out as you mention, losing some of the acidity & varietals, but giving more body & sweetness but also with more caramel/cocoa flavours taking over.
      Hard to know what I like best really!
