A coffee tasting, or cupping, is a great way to evaluate different coffees and having the proper coffee tasting supplies is important. Cupping spoons are a seemingly average utensil, but they actually have been designed for a very specific purpose. In general cupping spoons feature a deeper bowl, somewhat like a soup spoon, this shape is what allows cupping spoons to hold more coffee than a typical spoon. Also, the larger bowl helps facilitate the slurping process to ensure that the coffee is hitting all areas of the palate. Additionally, cupping spoons have been designed to fit standard cupping bowls and glasses making the tasting process much easier.
The diminutive size of this type of spoon makes it unsuitable for use when serving food but for a coffee cupping this is exactly what you will need. Ensure your guests are able to enjoy the subtle flavor and aromas of your specialty roasted coffee beans with the addition of a set of cupping spoons to your other coffee supplies.
While there are always exceptions, most cupping spoons are constructed from stainless steel or silver to make them incredibly durable as well as easy-to-clean.
