Cafe Hound: Coffee Recommender Project

Coffee Segmentation Results

Our results identified six broad categories of coffee that we have ordered from lightest to darkest roast (based on average Agtron ratings). Agtron ratings are a numerical representation of the consistency of the bean roast color (lower numbers indicate a darker roast <45, higher numbers indicate a lighter roast 50+).  More than the roast determines the flavor profile and overall body of the coffee, which is why some of these segments may appear similar.

Below coffee categories are arrayed from lightest to darkest roast profile.
