Crossmodal interactions in perception of foods and beverages are important for food liking and selection. People use all senses (the sense of taste, smell, sight, hearing, and touch) for perception of food. This study focuses on the effect of composed music/soundscapes on taste perception and liking of coffee drink among adult subjects. Our hypothesis is that coffee perception can be modified with external space sensory stimuli.
