    As mentioned in Black Cat's thread, I decided to try doing a three-way cupping of the Rwandan Kinini autumn harvest natural process from three different roasters: Black Cat, Crankhouse (Google cache link) and Yellow Bourbon. Black Cat and Crankhouse are the Peaberry, Yellow Bourbon is not. It...

    Hi there, I decided to collect all summaries and results from coffee cupping. Naturally I thought about collecting data and reviews in the spreadsheet which is quite straight forward. This method, however, has it's limitations when my database increases. It's hard to compare coffees and review...

    Just saw an instagram post from James Hoffman and he's doing "the worlds biggest cupping" on 21st September with a live stream based on coffee they send out from Square Mile. You can see his video about it and more info on youtube Sounds good fun, what do you think. Will you give it a try...

    ØKENDE, a new place in West Bridgford, Nottingham, is hosting Danish roasters La Cabra this Tuesday evening for some cupping. I've only had the chance to visit once but I tried a couple of really nice pour overs, including a Geisha, and really enjoyed the whole experience. The shop is...

    I wondered how people judge the quality of roasts both as home Roasters and the professionals among us? As we've got so many knowledgeable folks also if you have ideas what good tests would be? Obviously taste is a key factor but as that's subjective are their extra tests that people do. If...

    I'm new to the coffee scene and want to start doing some home roasting with the aim to produce a quality bean in due course. I appreciate that there are a number of thing that will need to come together to produce a quality roasted bean but how do you know you have one. I'm assuming by cupping...

    Guys at work performed the cruelest prank on me and I am not sure my pride will ever recover . Here's the story, followed by a serious question and I'd appreciate your thoughts. So here's what happened: About a week ago, a college brought a very dark roast ashy coffee from Cuba - Cafe Serano...

    Just seen it on Has Bean's facebook feed. https://www.hasbean.co.uk/products/rattleware-cupping-brewer What do people think? Probably be too much sediment for my liking.

    Quick review of several roasters reveals a few are offering the customer the choice of having their S.O.s roasted either for espresso or pour over which indicates that there is a different roast profile used for each to optimise for the brew method in question. Does this matter? Does it affect...

  12. Coffee Beans
    I'm thinking of trying to do some cupping. Does anyone have a simple straight forward process that they follow, I'm not interested at this time in recording my results all I want is to try and develop my tasting. Ian

    So... In the longstanding tradition of assuming I'm wrong and I'm entirely misguided about objectively looking at coffee and its taste, I want to send some coffee out to upstanding citizens of the forums. Also @garydyke1 actually has this properly nailed as an idea so... it'll all be from...

    We have an excellent coffee firm in Surbiton, Coffee Traders that supply beans and machines largely to the trade across Southern England. For £15 they do a really in-depth tour and talk. We went on Saturday and can thoroughly recommend it. We got to see the 2 roasting machines in action, the...

    I've got Hasbean beans in the bags with a one way valve. They were roasted 15 days ago. I opened them 14 days ago. Perhaps I'm imagining it but the taste seems a little diminished already. Is it too late to cup them?

    I was having a natter with Ian at Atkinsons yesterday and we got talking about barista training. I'm wondering if anyone on here would be interested in a half-day training in Atkinson's training room? He can organise whatever a small group of enthusiasts would want to cover, cupping, brewing...

    There was an interesting article in the Guardian earlier in the week about spoon science - 'zinc for fizz, steel for saltiness, gold for mango sorbet...the right type of spoon can blow your taste buds away...' (or not). There is much forum interest in the difference that water can make (along...
