We are always delighted to arrange a cupping at our Huntingwood Quality Lab. Cuppings are always always informal; we speak coffee not jargon. Allow at least an hour; we normally cup Monday to Thursday. If you've never cupped before, don't worry!
For the experienced cupper, we often put a few new arrival samples on the table, always a good chance to calibrate!
GREEN COFFEE PRE-BLENDING
This is a service unique to CofiCom and designed to enhance production efficiency for roasters – large or small. Using specially designed equipment from Japan, Taiwan and Australia, origins first run through de-stoners before passing through equipment designed to achieve an accurate ratio mix. Blends can be packed in 60kg or 900kg bags. Minimum production run is 1.5 tonnes per recipe.
We understand the flavours and unique characteristics of our coffees how to bring these flavours together. Whether it’s a very specific blend match or totally new project, we can help with constructive and practical feedback.
All discussions are always totally confidential.
ROASTED OR GREEN COFFEE ANALYSIS
We are always happy to analyse green of roasted coffee. Screening reports, moisture content, water density can be provided if needed.
Our Quality Lab Agtron is always on and running a roasted sample through on Gourmet or Commercial scale is no problem at all. All we need is a 70g sample of roasted beans.
Providing feedback on blends is part of what we do as well. We cup the blend in our usual way to build an idea of the flavour and origins, then taste as espresso and most importantly; in milk.
