tess_presso Coffee Cupping with the delightful team at @cartelroasters.

Coffee cupping is the practice of examining the tastes and aromas of coffee.

According to the SCAA, cupping allows you to assess the following attributes of coffee: - Fragrance/Aroma: Aroma is assessed by sniffing the grounds placed into the cup before pouring water onto the coffee, sniffing the aromas released while breaking the crust; and sniffing the aromas released as the coffee steeps. - Flavor: This involves the coffee's main character, and focuses on the taste bud sensations and retro-nasal aromas that go from the mouth to nose. - Aftertaste: this is the length of positive taste and aroma components that stem from the back of the palate and remain after the coffee is swallowed. - Acidity: This is the "brightness" or "sourness" , and creates the coffee's liveliness and sweetness. - Body: This is the tactile feeling in the mouth. - Balance: This is how all the above components work together and complement eachother.
