What is cupping all about?
Coffee cupping is the practice of observing the tastes and aromas of brewed coffee.
Cupping will help you to identify basic taste sensations in coffee - sweet, salty, sour, bitter & umami. You'll consider aroma, flavour, aftertaste, acidity, body, balance & sweetness.
Coffee is scored out of 100 based on quality, intensity and uniformity. Speciality-grade coffee is coffee which scores over 80 on the SCA scale.
Dear Green make regular donations to charity. This month with every purchase made you are helping us donate to humanitarian aid charities supporting the devastation following the recent earthquakes in Turkey and Syria. This cause is close to our hearts as it is directly affecting the families of some of our customers and of our colleague Kenan.
