Are you a coffee sipper or gulper? One study shows that taking larger sips of coffee give the best flavor, since more aroma is released compared to during smaller sips. The study looked at “sip volume” and found that larger sips have a higher aroma releases. The researchers were from the University of Naples and pointed out the well-known correlation between smell and taste, and that one can have a significant impact on the other.
This advice does go against that for other drinks, such as wine, where people are advised to take small sips to get the maximum flavor and aroma. These findings were published in the journal “Food Research International.”
