Coffee drinkers of the world: are you good enough to taste the difference? Those that think they are competed in the 2015 World Cup Tasters Championship, hosted in Sweden this past weekend.
The Cup Tasters “awards the professional coffee cupper who demonstrates speed, skill, and accuracy in distinguishing the taste differences in specialty coffees.” Essentially competitors are given 8 set of 3 cups of coffee, and its up to them to tell which one out of the 3 is different from the other two. You have to be quick to pick the odd ball out.
Juan Gabriel Cespedes Won first place, correctly identifying all of them, a clear majority win against the others.
I will compete in the taster championship If it's free to enter, don't care about winning, I just want to taste all the different coffees!
Hahaha YES sign me up too @Animaniafreak
Yeah, I can imagine you would get the hang of it pretty easily. But to compete for your speed... I don’t think I could drink that fast!
Comparative tasting is a lot of fun. Usually I can't tell too much about a type of coffee just by drinking one, but if I'm tasting it and then tasting another one, you can tell which one is bolder, more acidic, etc.
