Let’s get cupping!
The cupping process takes about 45 minutes to an hour to complete so set aside the time you need. If you’re doing it with a group of friends, it will likely take a bit longer, so give yourself a bit of a buffer.
Arrange the cups, spoons, rinsing glass on the table where you’re going to carry out the activity.
You will pour the hot water at the table where you’re cupping paraphernalia is located, which means you don’t have to carry the hot cups to where you want to taste.
Mocha Life online tasting
If you’re taking part in a Mocha Life tasting, get everything ready 5 mins before we’re due to begin, so when the start time arrives you’re ready to rock and roll.
Creating that Mocha Life vibe
Whether you’re tasting with friends or on your own, check our Mocha Life playlists, available on Spotify, (soon to be on Tidal, Apple Music and Amazon music as well). It will hopefully help to set the mood. (see https://mocha.life/playlists for more info). Be aware that everyone playing music at full volume whilst tasting may disrupt the proceedings a bit.
Tastings with friends?
Get everyone together on your favourite video call app, be it skype, zoom, whatsApp. You will have too much fun and you’ll find it interesting to know how your taste differs from your coffee mates.
Remember, please be safe, and keep hot items away from the little ones.
