bold coffee

Otherwise knowledgable customers still ask for 'bold' coffee. Why, as an industry, are we so averse to this tasting term? There are many coffees that could be considered 'bold', like a big-body Sumatra, regardless of brew strength or roast level.

Mild, on the other hand...

Just saw that this was addressed by Marshall back in the day. Nevermind :oops:

I don't think it's a bad idea to bring it back up. And for what it's worth, I agree with you! "Bold" is evocative of the feeling that coffee gives many people, and as such is a worthwhile descriptor of coffee, in my view. Not all descriptors need to be on the flavor wheel.
