Coffee Cupping

Cupping pourCoffee cupping is the process of coffee tasting and evaluation performed in a systematic and objective manner. Protocols developed by the Specialty Coffee Association of America for coffee cupping are recognized as the worldwide standard for coffee cupping, but applying them correctly, consistently and effectively within your business requires training and practice. We provide training for coffee cuppers all levels of skill and experience:

  • Sample roasting and cupping protocols
  • Correct use of scoresheets (SCAA, Cup of Excellence and UCDA Robusta)
  • Variations for lab or competition evaluation
  • Regional calibration or origin profiling

We provide instruction to individuals in scheduled classes and for private company or association groups at your own location or others worldwide. Contact us to discuss scheduling a coffee cupping training course for your private group.
