    Just giving you the heads up on what will be hitting the table on Saturday the 1st of August:

    We will be using three (3) coffees from Fazenda Monte Allegre and they will be Fully Washed, Semi Washed and a Natural.

    We are looking at the effects of washing or not washing coffees and the results this has in the cup. I always find this one of the most fascinating journeys in cupping.

    Cheers

    Another interesting sensory experience at Veneziano although very different this time with no coffee in sight.

    Whoever would have thought it could be so tricky to differentiate between salty, sweet and sour.

    Yes to add on Alexs post
    It was similar to the test one would normally take if you wanted to become a sensory judge

    Requirement is 100% correct to pass

    Next cupping is in 2 weeks

    Re: Cupping Series II - First Pour Brisbane

    For those that are interested in some of the specifics but couldnt remember them either I did a bit of googling.

    We did solutions of water + either sugar, citric acid or salt

    Im not sure that the info below specifies exactly what we did but it all seems reasonable

    Ingredient * * * * * * * * Volume per litre of Spring water (or any constant water source really *

    sucrose (sugar) for sweetness 3,6,12,24g/l
    citric or tartaric acids for sourness 5,10,20,40g/l
    salt .5, 1, 2, 4 *g/l
    quinine or quinine sulphate for bitterness 2.5, 5, 10,20mg/l
    tannic acid for bitterness and astringincy 5,10,20,40g/l *
    aluminium potassium sulphate for astringency without bitterness *2.5, 5, 10,20mg/l

    That said I have no idea where to get quinine sulphate or aluminium potassium sulphate outside of a chemical supplier...

    Alan Frew has some links to how to make the solutions in his article archives somewhere on his website, but I think youll have to look back about 2-3 years ago.
