Join Royal Coffee NY at The Lab for a 3 hour introductary cupping workshop! We will go over a brief history of coffee and the journey it takes to get to your cup. We'll talk about why coffee professionals use cupping as the industry standard, and then students will particpate in setting up and executing 3 cuppings representing the 3 major coffee growing regions. Plenty of time for a Q & A session afterward over some pizza!
