Yep - It's a bit controversial because some of the scents smell 
nothing like the thing they should - in fact "Chocolate" is one of 
the worst in the set. The much better set is the larger (more 
expensive Le Nez du Vin) but it has many scents that are indeed found 
in coffee. The main object is to learn to associate scents with 
words, so it's good practice even if they are not quite spot on.
