Sensory Perception of Coffee: Theory and Practice. Panther Coffee has partnered with Florida International University to bring Dr. Fabiana Carvalho, a researcher at Brazil's University of Campinas, to Miami. Carvalho is exploring how the influence of extrinsic factors — including ambiance — changes our expectation and perception of flavor in specialty coffee. A morning lecture will introduce the main scientific concepts on flavor perception, the latest research findings on the topic, and how it relates to the way you drink coffee. In the afternoon, a practical workshop will offer a series of hands-on learning exercises. Several methods will be used to identify primary tastes, the main organic acids in coffee, mouthfeel, and metallic flavors, and will also offer a comparative sensory description of three coffee samples. 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Attendees have a choice of dates: Saturday, July 6; Sunday, July 7; and Monday, July 8; at the Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management at Florida International University Biscayne Bay Campus, 3000 NE 151st St., North Miami; 305-919-4500; hospitality.fiu.edu.
