Calibration Cupping (wholesale partners only)

The calibration cupping is a tasting-focused course. It immerses baristas in three consecutive tasting experiences designed the strengthen and calibrate the barista’s tasting language. Baristas start by cupping a small group of coffees. Then, the SCA Coffee Taster’s Wheel and Coffee Lexicon are introduced and explained. Next, the group tastes some of the references used on the wheel, which are according to the SCA Flavor and Aroma lexicon recipes. Last, the group recups the same coffees. During the last tasting, the class uses the tasting wheel to guide flavor calls. The session concludes with a group discussion and calibrating.
