Counter Culture have just released their 'updated' version of SCAA's ubiquitous flavour wheel!

Just read about it on Sprudge here: Click Here (sprudge.com)

What does everyone think?

It was about the time. SCAA's wheel is inadequate for professionals in specialty coffee industry (advanced coffee geeks as well;) and added descriptors have been "standard" for a while.
Nice to see someone put it together.

Since you asked, it is a great improvement, although it begs the question that no two people are going to experience the same tastes in the same shot, although we most likely share agreement on the major notes.
This is because taste is not like sight or hearing, although we insist on treating it as if it were.
For instance, our ability to perceive (as opposed to appreciate or interpret) a painting or song does not change over much of our lives but our ability to taste changes radically from childhood to adulthood and continues to change during adulthood.

One glaring omission from all of the Flavor (sorry, I'm a Yank) Wheels is the mention of a salty, or mineral taste.  We all taste this from time to time, but most of us gloss over it.  The mention of 'soil' does not mean the same thing.
