  • How to Cup please !!!

    Greetings CSers,

    I would like to start some cupping at a coffee group we have here at home but I havent even watched a cupping session , apart from comp stuff on You Tube. I have a manual pour over and Auto Drip too (technivorm). I have heaps of paper filters and a Swiss gold also.
    Can someone please give me brewing instructions including coffee to water ratio and steep time etc please.

    Thanks heaps,

    Chris

      Chris, Ive got a bunch of forms if you PM me your email address.

      But in a nutshell, 8.25g in 150ml of off the boil water, steep 4 mins, break crust with back of spoon, wait 4 more min and slurp away. You can get proper cupping spoons but a soup spoon works too.

          Had my first play today. Just used 2 small roasts, one Guatmalan and PNG Wahgi. The most fun was trying to roast such a small amount 200gms and 300gms respectively.
          Anyway 150ml to 8.25 as Michelle suggested and I was pleasantly surprised by how good it tasted (no spitting out yet).
          Lots of variables not least of which was the roasting. The 200gm batch was done in 7 minutes :-[ reminded me of the popper days.

          Anyway all good fun and if you havent had a play give it a go

                Hi - this is my first post so hope I havent put it in the wrong spot.
                Great information above about cupping etc.... one thing I was looking for and still yet to find is a taste chart ie what kind of aromas, fragrances and flavours to expect from different coffee/regions. Anyone able to help this beginner?

                          hey, in regards to the wheel, its not entirely useful without the Lingle book of the explainations of the tastes/aromas on the wheel. Its amazing how wrong people are in using the descriptors on the wheel, myself included. Just a thought.

                            And the wheel and book should then be coupled with an aroma and taste kit.

                            Never ending is it?
