Di Bella Coffee and Veneziano Caffe have run some good ones...Originally Posted by 06332029202C0A410 link=1278545191/0#0 date=1278545191
The Veneziano Caffe one ran over 6 or 8 weeks and was a great exposure to many things coffee.
As to what your suggesting... It comes down to what your expecting / assuming will be the outcome.
I have done both and still consider my self to be a nube.. My palate and nose have been abused over many years.... Thus I can say what I like.. But dont try to get me to say what side of teh mountain or at what hight the beans were grown... I cheat and look on the bag and trust the bean supplier is not pulling a swiftly.
A good training session means Lots of hardware... Lots of beans, Charts to help explain, A Special kits of all the aromas to assist with people being able to accurately identify and compare noses etc.
Then ya need to do it across a wide selection to get a real feel for it.
A simple home run cupping session can be done by any number of CSér in Brisbane... But you could end up thinking you have it all... When there is much more to it..
It is not a numbers thing and you need lots of exposure to tune your palate correctly..
Suggest you make some noise with some of teh Sponsors here in Brisbane and see what happens...
