Coffee Bean Trays are used during a cupping to show off your beautiful roasted beans to everyone at the event. Your guests need to know what the coffee looks like before they cup, or taste the coffee for the first time. They will be able to inspect the beans for defects and assess the aroma before the coffee is tasted.
Not only are these trays a useful tool for sampling coffee, you can also set out trays of beans to help advertise a particular roast to your customers. Showing off your beans will help you to connect to your community; everyone loves coffee so why not teach them a little bit about why it’s really great.
Coffee Trays are an essential on the spread of any successful coffee cupping table. You will need one tray per bean type, per person. Some coffee trays feature a card holder for you to write the name of the bean or roast upon for easy identification, or try labeling them with a pick stuck in the beans. Although it’s just a simple plastic tray, it facilitates a truly magical experience that will introduce people to coffee culture and hopefully keep them coming back to your coffee shop, time after time.
