A major component in the flavour profile of a coffee, it is a tactile sensation in the mouth used in cupping. quite literally can refer to how a coffee feels in the mouth or its apparent texture. In cupping mouth feel is scored at light City roast level but mouth feel can be directly affected in other ways by roast level as well, brew strength, and proper resting of the coffee after roasting. That is, Espresso and Dark Roast coffees have noticeably different mouth feel than the same coffees at lighter levels. Body is synonymous with mouth feel, but the latter implies a wider range of possible qualities, whereas body traditionally implies viscosity only. Mouth feel is perceived by the trigeminal receptors, nerve fibers that surround taste buds.
