Blind Tasting Box Catalogue


We've been fans of blind tastings for a long time - almost all of our cuppings (the tasting process we use to assess coffees) are done blind - whether we're choosing new coffees to buy, or comparing roast profiles or brewing recipes. Blind tastings eliminate bias, but they also really force one to taste, and smell carefully - this sensory development is vital for coffee professionals, and equally rewarding for all keen coffee drinkers.
