What is cupping?

Coffee cupping is a practise used by coffee buyers and roasters to taste and score coffees side by side. It's also a great way to develop your palate and breakdown aspects of the coffee's taste.
Typically, seasoned cuppers will be assessing body, sweetness, acidity and overall flavour.

What will you be doing?

Each session is hosted by a Seven Seeds coffee roaster who will run through the cupping process and together the group will learn about and appreciate the chosen coffees of the day.

Where does the donation go?

100% of your $4 donation goes to an organisation in Australia called Street Smart.
Once we reach our 1k target we will make the donation in full and then select our next charity / cause to contribute to. 

Why Street Smart?

We started taking public cupping donations in December 2015 and our first project to support was Water Wise Coffee Project. Once we reached our 1k target at the end of July 2016 we decided to move our focus to something a little more local to Seven Seeds. With Cafesmart kicking off on Friday 5th August 2016, we saw it as the perfect organisation to support going forward. Once again, we're looking at a 1kg target. 

By donating to our cupping session, you are helping fund and support community and grassroots projects in Australia to help combat Homelessness.
