Here's a little story I like to tell about the second ever Roasters Guild Retreat in 2002.
We returned to Sana'a to do some coffee cupper training, and to have a nighttime stroll around the old city.
We had the opportunity to cup some phenomenal coffees last week while I was visiting Oakland.
I'm roasting up a bunch of samples to take with me to Portland tomorrow. It will be some random coffees, but a fun cupping for sure.
Tom from Sweet Maria's cups green coffee. Yes, green, unroasted coffee.
Sweet Maria's hosted an event at our office/warehouse in Oakland, CA where we invited some local roasters and cuppers to cup each others' coffee, our coffee and, um....green coffee.
Hey Folks, here's a follow up video from the last cupping video.
So, to follow up on my last post, I made some videos of me cupping samples from the big box I got this week from HQ.

I slacked off after my quadruple header of Central Cup of Excellences, but here's a bunch of boring photos on a coffee competition. ;-<
An extended trip, the last of coffee comeptitions i judged, consecutively, a lot of time away from home.
