Aroma of coffee
What does Aroma mean to you?
The fragrance is processed in our mind through two different senses, nose and taste. It is called the postnasal olfactory response, in this process, aromas are processed first through the taste buds, and only later by the olfactory system. First, we drink a cup of coffee and enjoy its taste, then the aroma will be transmitted to the smell receptors, creating a full aromatic effect.
Fragrances don’t just apply to coffee, they exist in most everyday life events. They can also affect your mood! When we enter a restaurant, there are aromas wafting through the air. We will want to eat there and experience those aromas more personally. On the way to work, we become more and more familiar with the scent of that journey. Although you may not realize it, they are always there. Even as we walk through the park, we begin to have sensory experiences from nature around us.
Wherever you go, there are certain fragrances that define what the place is. These scents are reminiscent of the sensory experiences we’ve had in these particular places, reminding us of the contacts we’ve had. Therefore, invisible things that do not seem to exist have a great impact on each person’s consciousness.
