Women's Cupping
Guys dominate the table and the forums, with notable exceptions <tips hat to Ginny>.

I am putting together a cupping session of women from work who have expressed an interest in learning. I have enlisted the support of Cheryl, who lives about 30 SW of us and used to be a cupper for http://coffeeproj.... She now has her own business, http://magellanco.... Women often are involved in so many legs of coffee production except the final one, cupping/selection, where they are grossly underrepresented.

I think Cheryl and I will take a run at 4 Colombians from Royal and see if we and the women cuppers can scrum for a good one in the bunch.

Stay tuned.

BoldJava attached the following image:

Be prepared, they are likely to be much more in tune with the flavors than the fellas. The advantage you have is they'll be talking a lot and may forget what they tasted.Grin

We need a matriarch. Maybe you Ginny can serve that role in absentia.

When I discussed the proposed event with the woman broker with whom I work, she said she has found she is one of a very few women at the cupping table. In her humble opinion, women cuppers (who are more often chefs) have a better vocabulary and can pull out more flavors than guys (seems CHAD mentioned that first).

Just a thought to rattle the cage, B|Java

Same with hearing. The ladies can usually catch lower and higher frequencies than fellas of the same age. However, give them a map and, well, they'll have a map.Grin

This is a go. Occurs May 1st. We are going after a good Guat; one SHB, E/P and the second, Antigua Panchoy. As well, for contrast, a Yemen Sinaani and a Hawaiian Ka'u.
