Coffee Cupping?

What is this whole Coffee Cupping business?  It sounds wholly pretentious to me.  Has anyone ever been to one of these things?

Just like a wine tasting or a beer tasting; so as pretentious as you feel those are I guess.

I don't know as much about coffee as wine, but there are definitely different tastes even to non-flavored coffees.

You're right. I think it's the name that bothers me - can't it just be called Coffee Tasting?

I just heard about this!! I can see the niche desire for it, but it is a bit weird to call it "cupping" - the first time I heard the term, I thought they drank it with their hands lol!

Too true. I imagine pinkys out and lots of slurping to aerate. It's just a New York Times (or Mad) Magazine cartoon waiting to happen!
