Think different, drink coffee
You’ve heard of wine tasting? Well coffee tasting, also known as coffee cupping is pretty similar. Coffee tasters determine the characteristics of a coffee blend and try to guess the origin of the coffee bean and also judge the coffee based on its appearance, aroma, flavour and body. The first step of coffee tasting is actually noting the appearance of the coffee. Once this has been done, the real tasting begins. Take a spoonful of coffee, pucker your lips and forcefully sip it. This is called “aspirating” or “slurping” and it helps to enhance the taste experience. By slurping the coffee, you ensure that all your taste buds experience the coffee taste more or less at the same time. Plus, it’s a great excuse to make silly noises.
