Writeup – Open Cupping 31st July

Our first proper open cupping was a lot of fun. With about 25 people there we were pretty much at capacity. It was an interesting mixture of coffee people – consumers, baristas, cafe owners and (probably for the first time in London) roasters from 4 different roasteries in London all cupping together.

Just three coffees were put out – the La Rosa, the Escondida preship sample and the Muchoki peaberry. (more details for these coffees will be available when the webshop goes live – likely around the 6th or 7th August.) The favourite, by a good number of votes, was the Muchoki.

We’ll get our next open cupping scheduled in ASAP and get the details up here. Maybe next time we’ll even take a few photos!

Thank you to everyone for coming and making it a lot of fun, and an extra thank you to Bill and Flick for the tasty cake!
