I am on the hunt for a couple of dozen cupping bowls at the moment.
Not only do I want to practise triangular test cuppings but I want to get on with palate training. I have a little roaster, I am sure I can find a grinder. Its something I want to build into office life so all of use do it quite often, so we all develop our palate’s and ideas.
If ever I get control over a coffee shop its going to be mandatory for staff, something I think Stumptown seem to have right. There was a good article about them in Barista Magazine. I wonder how long it will have to be before there is something like this in the uk? I never ever see a barista based in the uk posting on message boards. Not one of potentially thousands. Its quite depressing really.
