    Hey Baca,

    This is my first time on your site and I thought that was a really great cupping video! I have just really started getting into coffee this year and actually did my first cupping at Coffeefest in Chicago not too long ago. With that said, I definitely still learned some helpful tips from this video too.

    Anyway, thanks for the great info!

      Awesome! Glad we could give a little insight. Have fun on your coffee journey it’s the best time ever!

    One of the reasons I love coming to Verve (in addition to my bowl of soul addiction) is that you guys play awesome music. How do you guys keep the jams flowin? If you use an online music player, what are some of the artists included in the musical selection?

    You should make monthly Verve mix tapes and post them on this blog. If the staff chooses the music, maybe each store could compile a mix.

      We use an LA based service called Playlist Generation. They custom curate all our music and cycle through it via a live DJ…check them out!

    Just did our first cupping and it was helpful having this short tutorial as a guide. Really broke it down it into layman’s without dumbing it down. Thanks Baca! Looking forward to more of these epic vids.

    Another quality vid – cheers for sharing guys. Some great tips in here. I actually never thought about cupping 2 or 3 identical coffees to make it a fair taste, but that does make good sense.
