Triangulation Cupping

On July 23rd, a few CRCC members got together to attempt a “triangulation cupping“.

This is a great sensory exercise where tasters are asked to select which cup of three samples is the not the same as the others. It sounds easy on paper but when there are multiple flights of three in front of you it’s easy to lose focus as you continue to cup down the line.

This particular triangulation featured three coffees – a high-grown Honduras, Ethiopia Amaro Gayo and Java Estate Blawan. Three very different growing regions should have proved easy to discern the odd cup out but not one of us nailed all six flights.
