Public Cupping with Common Wealth Coffee Roasters
Common Wealth Coffee Roasters out of Denver, Colorado will be gracing the doors of both our Canyon and Amarillo locations tomorrow.
Just who is Common Wealth. Simply stated they are two guys, Jason Farrar and Ryan Fisher who love coffee. They also are smashing fellows if I do say so. See for yourself.
This Wednesday (July 16th) you will have the chance to meet Ryan and have him brew you some delicious coffee in our Canyon shop from 9am - 11am. We will have a public cupping in Amarillo at 3pm until 5pm.
Here is the question of the day.
What is a cupping?
Well, here is the definition.
Coffee cupping - or coffee tasting, is the practice of observing the tastes and aromas of brewed coffee. It is a professional practice but can be done informally by anyone or by professionals known as "Master Tasters".
In simpler terms, we will put ground coffee in a cup, pour hot water on it and then after a set amount of time, we will dip a spoon and slurp, yes slurp, coffee. Then we will talk about what we are tasting and why we are tasting it.
It is a fun experience and we would love for you to come and hang out with us.
