Just a quick note – this past Saturday I attended a coffee cupping at Octane Westside. Being that I’m a budding coffee enthusiast, I’ve always wanted to attend one of the Counter Culture cupping sessions, which they hold every Friday morning, but it sort of conflicts with my work.
Good news for us weekday jobbers – Stevie at Octane has started to offer cupping and general coffee brewing info sessions every other Saturday or so, around 10:30AM. They post the event on their Facebook page so look for information there. It was just he and I this week, so I sort of got a private coffee tasting session, which was very interesting and informative. If you want to learn more about coffee, and really dig into aroma and flavors, the cupping methodology and side by side comparison really helps with the evaluation.
In case you’re wondering, the sessions are free.
