We had a successful cupping on Saturday. It was my first time to lead one, and everyone who took part seemed to enjoy themselves.
We did a blind cupping of 4 Colombian coffees. 2 were grocery store whole bean bin coffees. 1 was from Starbucks, and of course we had a Stanton Colombian. The clear taste preference was the Stanton coffee. The first time cuppers were able to detect several faults in the first 3 coffees. We learned that 3 of the coffees we cupped were fairly old. The only coffee with a known roast date was the Stanton coffee it was roasted on January 22.
