NYC coffee 'cupping' sessions set

Intelligentsia Coffee has scheduled a series of cupping events this month at the New York Cupping and Training Lab, 594 Broadway, Suite 909A, in Manhattan.

The free public events, set for October 2, 23 and 30, allow visitors to sample and compare the flavor of gourmet coffee beans and discuss their impressions.

Cupping selections range from new crop coffees to direct trade to special selections. "Cupping" is the standardized way to evaluate coffees, a method used by roasters, retailers, growers and importers. The three qualities evaluated during Intelligentsia events are body, acidity and aroma. As each coffee is sampled, the taster records and discusses their impressions.
