Most labels on bags of speciality coffee contain quite a bit of information about the origin of the coffee, the flavours you may be able to taste in the coffee, and how the coffee was processed.

With the information in this guide, you will have a point of reference to which you can turn as you learn about the different terms used by roasters on coffee labels and websites.
