Event description


The Grounds Coffee Cuppings

At The Grounds, we cup daily for green bean purchasing, quality control, education, and to develop a greater understanding and appreciation of the coffees we serve. Come and join us to learn about the origins of coffee, along with the cupping techniques coffee pros use industry-wide for evaluation. Cupping is very hands-on and open to anyone with an interest in coffee!

Our instructors will lead a small group through a variety of curated offerings. The class will detail a brief history of the cupping ritual, and participants will learn to assess the full sensory experience by focusing on aspects of fragrance, aroma, break, brightness, mouth-feel and flavour. Participants will leave with a better understanding of the complexity to be found within a great cup of coffee.
