Back in September, Knoxville went through a Sensory Panel Training. I was honored to be a part of this training, facilitated by Amy Trail of Sensory Spectrum and Shannon. These events require more prep than I could have imagined. Luckily, Sensory Spectrum provided much of the items pre-prepped, like all of the cups labeled with the appropriate three-digit numbers.
Amy had us tasting and smelling things like wood, jelly bellys, and instant (cereal) coffee and comparing those to similar characteristics found in coffee. This was a great jumpstart to a Sensory Panel, an excellent opportunity to calibrate a new team.
