Quality Control

There's a difference between 'cupping' coffees and simply tasting them.  This is the cupping process. It's a communal experiencing of a the Coffee to assess for flaws or adjust roast profiles to better fit the Coffee under evaluation (among many other things). It's simultaneously a multisensory critique, deeper understanding, and celebration of the Coffee in question.
