What is a Tasting Challenge?
A Tasting Challenge is a card containing tasting clues hinting to the identity of your Mystery Coffees.
Each Challenge highlights an aspect of coffee tasting and is specially designed to help you discover your own amazing sense of taste.
How to answer the Challenge?
Once you have ‘tasted’ the coffee and have an answer in mind, you can login and join the latest Tasting Challenge to submit your answer.
When will the answer be revealed?
The identity of your Mystery Coffees will be revealed 7 days after each Shipping Day.
This is to allow ample time for all Brewers to attempt the Challenge.
How should you brew your Mystery Coffees?
While you are free to brew with any methods that you prefer, we highly recommend that you compare your coffees with our DIY Cupping Recipe first whenever you receive a new Box.
This simplified version of the SCA Cupping Protocol is formulated to standardize the brewing recipe so that you can concentrate on the taste of the coffee.
