    I guess I would point you toward Sweet Maria's VLOG on YouTube, Tom is very informative. There are tours of different processing stations, and he will show you the beans in different stages of development, and explain some of the defects in the beans and what caused them, etc.

    However, there is no shortcut, you need to cup coffees, and taste different coffees. There is a HUGE selection of coffee in the world and there might not be any consumer product as complex as coffee.

    It also might be a good idea to go to the Specialty Coffee Association of America website as they have some tools that will help in your quest. Like the flavor profile chart and the box of scents commonly found in coffee (I forgot what it is called).

    He lives in Indonesia so the SCAA would not be applicable to him. The SCAA only applies to people who live in North America, particularly the USA.
