What is a Cupping Score?

“Cupping,” is a process for assessing characteristics of a coffee to determine its quality. Aspects like flavor, texture, acidity, sweetness, and more are rated to give the coffee a final score between 1-100. The final score plays a big role in determining the price per pound that the coffee can be sold for between the farmer and the buyer. This is a globally recognized process that can be done informally or by a licensed professional.  Not only does it ensure that the farmers are getting a fair price for their coffee, but here at Blue Sail we use it as a way to ensure YOU get a great cup of coffee every time!
