Cupid’s Cupping Event
February 14, 2017 @ 7:30 pm
Join Brian & Jennifer for and unforgettable evening of coffee cupping. Prepare to slurp, spit and explore the world of coffee by discovering the unique characteristics of single origin coffee beans as we test our palates to taste for:
Flavor – the most obvious, yet most difficult. What does the coffee taste like?
Aroma – what does the coffee smell like? Whole bean? Ground? With crust? Without crust?
Body – how thick (or syrupy) does the coffee feel in your mouth? Is it heavy or thin? The thicker it feels, the more body the coffee is said to have.
Aftertaste – what do you taste after the coffee has been swallowed?
Complexity – are there a lot of flavors and/or aromas? You’ve got yourself a complex coffee if the answer is yes.
Balance – does the coffee taste neither too weak nor too strong? Neither too sweet nor too bitter? Is it just right according to Goldilocks? You have yourself a balanced cup of coffee.
Acidity – is the coffee citrusy? Lots of fruity kick to it? Too acidic can be sour, but the right amount can be sweet.
Included in the cost are special Valentine’s Day Chocolates from the Appalachian Chocolate Company, a half pound of coffee beans of your choice and a keepsake photo to commemorate your love!
