    World's Largest Coffee Tasting - Australian Events

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    James Hoffmann is organising the world's largest coffee tasting, which I'm sure many of you will have seen around. I have the coffees on the way. The tasting is Saturday midnight, which isn't a great time for us, so I'm having some people around on Sunday morning to do it and we'll youtube the stream. We also have a few other commercial coffees to cup (some super fancy, but I might also slip in some defects to keep tasters on their toes), plus some investigation of different home roasts, probably three brackets all up. Also, I have a highly unorthodox and experimental blend for pretty unorthodox extraction conditions on the Decent machine that I'm happy to put up for critique. I may have room for one or two more - it's a bit TBC - so feel free to drop me a message if you'd like to join us.

    Meanwhile, I thought that others who have bought the kit might want to use this thread if they want to issue similar invitations.

    I have no idea what the coffees are, but this sounds like a fun event. I'm sort of expecting that they will just have picked some pretty extreme differences; eg. classic examples of a pulp nat Brazil, a natural Ethiopian, a Kenyan, a washed central and probably something a bit unusual ... I reckon they'll probably have put in one coffee that's something kind of pricey, maybe like one of the less ballistically expensive geishas from various countries outside panama, but I guess it could also be something like a monsooned malabar.

    Great offer from Luca, already done my first round cupping, not going to give anything away but there are a few very distinct rippers in there, tasting with experienced tasters will be most useful for anyone looking to expand tasting knowledge.
    Dimal and matth3wh like this.
