Most days, I drink my coffee hunched over the kitchen table, silent and with a scowl. I don\u2019t evaluate the color clarity, aroma, flavors or finish, I\u2019m just trying to wake up and face the day.\r\n\r\nAnd that\u2019s a shame.\r\n\r\nThere\u2019s as much to analyze and discuss with coffee as there is with wine. Terroir, roasting and brewing methods all affect what ends up in your mug, which can be bright or bitter, fruity or toasty.\r\n\r\nIt stands to reason that people who like to drink wine and taste through its nuances might like to do the same with coffee. The good news is that you can\u2014and without becoming an over-caffeinated wreck in the process. The method may seem familiar to wine lovers: Try a flight.\r\n\r\nYou don\u2019t even have to leave your house to enjoy a coffee flight. If you\u2019d rather stay in your pajamas, Angels\u2019 Cup is a good bet. This coffee subscription service will send you four bags labeled only with a number, either in light roast or medium roast, so you can brew your own flight. It also includes offerings from top-shelf roasters like La Colombe and Gorilla, as well as those of some smaller, boutique producers.\r\n\r\n\u201cThroughout the year, we\u2019ll also occasionally do some special flights,\u201d says Jeffrey Borack, co-founder and CEO of Angels\u2019 Cup. \u201cFor example, we did a Colombia Bourbon\u00a0[coffee variety]\u00a0box, where we showcased a Yellow Bourbon, Red Bourbon, and then two Pink Bourbons, which is a hybrid of red and yellow.\u201d\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nBorack says that while good coffee is important, he also looks to create flights that will teach the drinkers something.\r\n\r\n\u201cWe want to give our subscribers a chance to accurately identify the origin and processing of each coffee, which is not an easy task,\u201d he says.\r\n\r\nIf you prefer more guidance, Qualia Coffee, located in Washington, DC, has you covered. You can choose a sampling of the roaster\u2019s beans, and their professionals will brew you three 4-ounce pours. It allows you to try an heirloom bean variety from Ethiopia alongside a fruity brew from Papua New Guinea.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAt Fare and Folk in Brooklyn, New York, owner Annette Bruno also does flights of different beans, but she goes a step further. Her company will pair each bean with a different brewing method like drip, Aeropress or pour-over.\r\n\r\n\u201cI\u2019m teaching people about which steeping methods work well with which beans, really letting you know what your options are when you go to a coffee shop,\u201d she says.\r\n\r\nIf you need a little nibble to soak up all that caffeine, Bruno is happy to oblige. A pastry chef, she\u2019ll help you pair the perfect confection with your cup.\r\n\r\nThe use of flights to sample different preparation methods is also a popular idea. At G&B Coffee and Go Get \u2018Em Tiger coffee shops in Los Angeles, ordering their Full Nelson option provides customers a taste of espresso, macchiato and cappuccino, plus a fourth drink of your choosing. This flight teaches more about the effect of different levels of milk and foam than it does the beans themselves, but will hopefully help the next time you stare down a coffee menu.\r\n\r\nWhatever route you go, be prepared for your morning cup to look a little different.
