I recently had my first ever “cupping” experience. Don’t worry… I haven’t gotten all strange on you. Cupping is simply a fancy word for a coffee tasting experience.
Kelby, Lisa and I are part of the Green Mountain Coffee bloggers ambassador team, and we joined up with our fearless Green Mountain Coffee leaders in Waterbury, VT for a weekend of sight seeing and Green Mountain Coffee experiences. I am even more impressed with Green Mountain Coffee than before! It truly is a great company doing really great things.
I took a ton of pictures on the trip, but unfortunately lost them all in the computer / iphone update issue I had last month. I do have a few short video clips I compiled to share with you. I hope you enjoy our “cupping” experience!
You can join in a Green Mountain Coffee cupping experience of your own. Simply tune into the Barista Prima Facebook page on Tuesday, November 8th at 8am EST. Two-time Italian Barista Champion, Francesco Sanapo and Green Mountain Coffee’s own Sandy Yusen will conduct a virtual tasting for us, walking through the four Barista Prima Coffeehouse varieties.
