When was the last time you were able to try an array of different coffees at the exact same time? Imagine the amount of variation you could taste if you could try, essentially, a coffee “flight”. The side by side evaluation of coffee samples is known in the coffee industry as “cupping”, and is one of the most eye opening activities for coffee enthusiasts. It is conducted by steeping ground coffee in small bowls of hot water, and evaluating each sample on aroma, flavor, aftertaste, acidity, body and balance. At the end of the day, a coffee has to taste great…regardless of how expensive it is, how rare it is, or how pretty the packaging is. Cupping puts all coffees on the same playing field, and lets the flavor do the talking. You’ll be amazed at how much variation you can taste between different coffee origins, varieties, processing methods, and roast styles. Cup with us today and see what you’ve been missing!
