We offer Cupping Lab Fundamentals at our Monroe roasting and training facility by appointment. After you order the class from our website, we will reach out to schedule a date for your session.

This workshop will cover the fundamentals of coffee cupping, which is the method used to evaluate coffees all around the world. By tasting (cupping) coffees from various origins and processing methods, this session will help you enhance your tasting abilities and begin to establish a vocabulary that will allow you to more precisely explain what you're experiencing. 

Learn how to taste like a pro! In a cupping-style tasting, you will compare six coffees side by side and learn about the differences in origin, method, and roast profile. You'll identify broad categories and branch out from simple to intricate tasting notes

Cupping is an evaluative tool. It's a method of focusing on the many aspects of a coffee and analyzing what each coffee has to offer. Developing a palate is an important part of the coffee tasting process. Cupping Fundamentals exposes the coffee enthusiast to cupping, a systematic method of evaluating coffee. We'll be using custom cupping forms as well as the SCA Coffee Taster's Flavor Wheel.

Our cupping events are purposefully kept simple in order to provide a one-of-a-kind experience free of criticism or pretense. It all comes down to learning to pay attention to the details. Participants are requested to take notes on the scent, aroma, sweetness, acidity, body, and overall flavor of various coffees.

Please avoid wearing perfumes, heavily scented shampoos, or other personal products that may impair others' sense of smell and taste.

Classes are limited to four participants each session. There must be a minimum of two participants. If the required minimum number of participants is not met, the session will be rescheduled for the following month, or a refund may need to be issued.
