Cupping for Beginners
Interested in tasting a variety of coffees using the industry’s standard method for evaluation? This 1.5 hour class teaches students the valuable and crucial skill used by all coffee professionals throughout the supply chain. Cupping is a methodical process used to evaluate different coffees side by side used by green buyers to choose which coffees to purchase, by roasters to help guide their roast profiles, and by baristas to know how to best brew and serve coffees in the cafe.
Our Cupping for Beginners class will cover all of the techniques and protocol for cupping, and will also focus on essential tasting techniques and terminology that is commonly used in the industry. After cupping several coffees, students will have a chance to taste their favorite coffees brewed to see how the flavors on the cupping table translate into the final beverage.
All materials are included in the price and students are welcome to take photos and write down notes throughout the class. After the class, students will be able to purchase coffee and equipment from our Pro Shop at a 10% discount. No experience necessary.
