HOW TO USE GMP FLAVOUR STANDARDS
_

Each capsule can be diluted into 2L water to calibrate up to 40 people (50ml serving each), but when diluting into coffee we recommend using a weight/volume distribution of 6-8g coffee granules with 1L to calibrate 20 people (50ml serving each).

1. Push out the capsule needed for the session from the blister pack.

2. Hold the capsule upright and at arms length. Tap the capsule and pull apart each half*. Ensure the direction of the capsule is away from your face as you pull the capsule apart.

3. Dispense the powder into a pitcher or jug partly filled with your beverage.

4. Swirl the pitcher to release the flavour.

5. Top up the jug with your beverage to reach the desired training level.

6. Dispense the prepared sample into tasting glasses.

 

*If your capsule is difficult to pull apart – please carefully use scissors to cut open one end of the capsule and pour.
