Cupping is a method of identifying the characteristics of your coffee, whether it’s the aroma, the body, or the intensity of flavours by using the same brewing parameters in every cupping bowl.
Rating the cup purely by taste and smell is an essential part of evaluating and understanding the quality of your roasts, much like wine tasting.
The ceramic cupping bowls guarantees the coffee remains at an optimum temperature level for a longer period by retaining the heat of your brew in your cupping bowl.
Cupping is perfect for increasing your knowledge on coffee brewing while improving the quality of your brews as you go.
