Cupping with Royal, An Introduction to Coffee SOLD OUT

Join Royal Coffee NY at The Lab for a 3 hour introductory cupping workshop.

In this workshop, we will cover the amazing journey a coffee bean takes to get to your cup.  We will discuss how coffee professionals taste and evaluating coffee, and then put our skills to the test, cupping 3 flights of coffee representing the 4 major growing regions and a variety of processes from each region.

This class is great for people who want to learn more about tasting coffee, and also recommended for coffee professionals who want to learn more about cupping protocol, coffee evaluation, or to taste coffees that they may not taste often. 

Plenty of time for Q&A after class.  Light refreshments will be served.

Please RSVP by emailing
