What is cupping? No, we are not talking about the alternative medicine suction therapy, we are talking about coffee of course! Simply put, it's the easiest and most efficient way to sample many coffees in succession. Cupping coffee is a standardized method of evaluating coffee, it is utilized by coffee professionals all along the supply chain (growers, exporters, importers, green buyers, roasters, and baristas). It is kind of like brewing with a French Press without the French Press, and it involves spoons and slurping. But don't be worried, there is nothing to be afraid of! Matt or our head roaster Bobby will walk you through the entire process with info along the way. Want more information? Read more about cuppings in depth on our blog.
