Cupping Coffee

Coffee quality can be determined through a method called Cupping. It is a standard way to analyze a coffee's aroma, taste, mouthfeel, and appearance.

Cupping can be done to evaluate a single coffee or compare a few coffees.


Multiple small cups are set out for the process. One cup has tasting spoons and clean water. One has whole green unroasted beans, and one has whole roasted beans. The rest of the cups have coarsely ground roasted beans portioned into them. Hot water is poured into the cups with grounds, and then the quality rating process begins.
