Enjoying coffee

Coffee beans arrive at Paulig from all over the world, and they all have their own flavour depending on their country of origin. Almost a thousand different aromas have been identified in roasted coffee, which is more than, say, wine. The atmosphere also plays a role: the same coffee may taste very different on a rush-hour bus or when enjoyed on a lakeside on a beautiful summer day.

Which country, what kind of flavour?

A particular coffee comes from a particular country whose soil, climate and growing conditions give it its characteristic flavour profile. African coffee varieties are often described as having a berry-like taste and being acidic, while South American coffees often have nutty or chocolatey flavours.

Coffee in different cultures

Finns drink more coffee than any other nation in the world – as many as five cups every day. In Moscow, St. Petersburg and the Baltic countries, coffee drinkers enjoy 1–3 cups of differently prepared coffee every day.

A cup of minerals, please

A cup of black coffee contains hardly any fat, carbohydrates or protein, so it only has 1–2 calories. However, coffee contains many minerals and vitamins, especially potassium, magnesium and niacin.
