Cupping is one of the coffee tasting techniques used to evaluate the aroma and overall flavour profile of a coffee. To understand the minor differences between coffee growing regions, it is important to taste coffee from around the world side-by-side. Join us, in partnership with Classic Gourmet (Rufino Espresso), and learn to smell, slurp, spit and repeat.
About Rufino & Classic Gourmet:
Since 1974, the Rufino family has been perfecting the art of coffee roasting. They are producing blends that, while true to the tradition of espresso employs 21st century technology to roast the perfect bean.
The finest specialty coffee beans are stringently selected from the world’s coffee producing countries, and then meticulously roasted with a unique system... where passion and precision work in harmony to create consistently, great tasting coffees. With the capability to incorporate specific profiles developed for each coffee and the precise control of roasting temperatures, the system allows for direct control of the roasting process and as a result, the overall quality of coffee.
Rufino uses state-of-the-art technology to reduce its carbon footprint. Highly sensitive process controllers ensure that no excess energy is wasted, and that the recirculating system eliminates the need for after-burners commonly used in typical roasting systems. The result is as much as a 77% reduction in CO2 emissions and fuel consumption compared to a typical roaster.
