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.
