My First Coffee Cupping Experience

I love everything about coffee- the smell, the taste, the nice buzz it gives me after my morning cups. So as soon as I began my internship with Green Mountain Coffee this summer, I knew I wanted to know everything I could about it! Luckily, Lindsey Bolger and her team of happy cuppers in the Coffee Lab let a group of us “Green Beans” sit in on one of their daily cuppings.

The smell of coffee was so strong in the cupping lab that I felt that we were walking into a giant vat of coffee. It took me a minute to process what exactly was going on: there were three or four professionals zooming around on stools, their noses poised dangerously close to hot cups and every once in a while leaping up to jot down notes. They were just starting the cupping process, and I already wanted to join in!


The Coffee Lab does blind cuppings, so they only identify each coffee’s country of origin and apply a numerical code to it. This is a play-by-play of what goes on at a cupping:
1. Separate beans into bowls , label each one with its origin country and numerical code, and then  grind the beans.

2. Set up 6 cups for each coffee to be tested. They use these cool circular tables that have tops that swirl around, making it easier to get to each cup. I had a lot of fun with these tables!

3. Hot water is then poured over the grounds to brew.

4. The cups need to cool for 4-minutes. This gets them to the optimal temperature, the one that brings out the aroma and flavors of the beans.

5. Time to smell! The water added to the grounds brings out the aroma of the brewed coffee, and you can actually smell the difference between the fragrance of dry beans and the aroma of these brewed grounds.

6. We then “broke” the grounds by sticking our noses mere centimeters away from the cup, placing our special cupping spoons into the cups, and swirling. This released more gases and got the cup ready for tasting, which was good because I was not about to slurp up coffee grounds!

7. Taste time! We were equipped with aprons, spoons, and mugs to spit out each sip, if we liked. Some people do not spit out; it depends on personal preference. We dipped our spoons in sideways, slurped as hard as we could but still couldn’t match the amazing slurps of the professional cuppers, but that will be a goal for my next cupping! After slurping, we spit  or swallowed.


Cuppers use a special form to evaluate each coffee. The evaluation is based off of the fragrance of the bean (how it smells before it is brewed), aroma (how does it smell the cup? Woody? Smokey?), flavor (does it have chocolate undertones? Is it spicy or nutty?), acidity (does the flavor burst in your mouth or lay flat?), body/mouthfeel (is it a ‘heavy’ coffee? Does it stay in your mouth or leave right away?), and finally aftertaste (is it dry, bitter, sweet?). This is on a 1-10 scale, with 6 being the baseline for quality. After these points are added up, special “cuppers points” can be given or taken away. Add up the total points, add 50, and there is your score! Green Mountain Coffee only uses coffees that have a score of 80 or above.

The most interesting part of the cupping was the discussion afterwards. These guys are true professionals, they could instantly describe a coffee they had cupped and understand all of its idiosyncrasies. The most amazing thing was that they put aside personal preference to evaluate each cup for what it was. During the evaluation, they found out which farm each one came from, whether or not it was organic or Fair Trade, and what its intended use is, that is if flavoring will be added, if it will be part of a blend, etc. The cupping team is extremely knowledgeable, and it was awesome to learn more about the process.

A big round of applause and thank you to the Coffee Lab, seeing exactly how a perfect cup of coffee is created was so fascinating, and now I think about that process every time I drink coffee, which is frequently! I don’t know whether it was from the amount of caffeine I accidentally consume or the fact that I LOVED the cupping experience, but I was definitely buzzing from it for rest of the day!

And the Effies go to...Green Mountain Coffee

Forgive us for a little display of marketing joy…

On June 8th the Green Mountain Coffee A Revelation In Every Cup Campaign was honored with two bronze Effie awards!  Never heard of the Effie?  Founded by the New York American Marketing Association, the Effies recognize effectiveness in marketing communications.  The awards Green Mountain Coffee won were in the highly competitive Beverage (non-alcoholic) category and in the David vs. Goliath category.

We’re so excited that our campaign was recognized and proud of the work that our team, and our agency BrandBuzz, have achieved.  But, of course, the only reason we got these lovely statues is because of you – our coffee fans – who share revelations with us everyday!

Thank you!

Fighting Food Insecurity with Beekeeping, Mushrooms, Compost and Gardens

Last week Rick Peyser, Director of Social Advocacy and Coffee-Community Outreach traveled to Nicaragua. He sent this post from the road:

Composting lesson at Selva Negra

The first Foro de Seguridad Alimentaria (Food Security Workshop) is being held at Selva Negra, a large coffee estate in Nicaragua.  GMCR featured coffee from Selva Negra as a Special Reserve selection last year, and is sponsoring this event organized by Sustainable Harvest.
The Foro is a hands-on workshop focused on four themes to help small-scale coffee farmers overcome months every year (known as "los meses flacos" or "the thin months) when they cannot maintain their normal diet.  The 4 areas of focus for this workshop are: family gardens, beekeeping, mushrooms, and the preparation of organic compost.  Over 60 farmers and technical assistants from throughout Latin America are participating and will soon be sharing the information from this Foro with their co-ops, neighbors, and others in their communities.

To read more about the workshops view Catholic Relief Services' (CRS) blogs on the topic here.

Green Cup, Green Frog

It shouldn’t surprise long-time Green Mountain Café readers to hear that we love it when Green Mountain Coffee fans send fun pictures and stories to share with us.  Whether it’s an unconventional coffee cake, a mall photo shoot, or a frog making itself at home in our Green Mountain coffee cups, few things makes us (and, hopefully, you) smile more than to see how these things come about.

…and, yes, you read that last item correctly: A cute little frog in a coffee cup planter.

Allow me to introduce Alex, Green Mountain Coffee fan and blooming organic gardener, who snapped a shot of this little fellow in a coffee-cup planter one day. Here is Alex’s froggy story:

I have a small porch garden outside of my apartment and I recently began growing tomatoes, herbs, and a few other plants here and there. I was starting some cuttings and seedlings on the porch right around Earth Day trying to get my fiancé involved with our organic garden. Like usual, I stopped on my way home from work to get some of your coffee and thought to myself, "What a good idea it would be to recycle coffee cups and reuse them as planters". The frog seems to love the cool moist soil during the hot summer days down here in Florida. After seeing this frog in the cup, I decided to snap a picture with my phone just because I thought it was neat. Then I got to thinking about what Green Mountain Coffee does to support sustainability and eco-friendly living. So, I checked out the website and thought that my picture might be a good fit in representing those same ideas. The frog comes back every couple of days and hunts the bugs at night. A great addition, to say the least.

Thanks to Alex for sending us this great picture!  Here’s hoping your garden will be buzzing with friendly creatures to help your vegetables grow!

The Bonnaroo Carbon Shredders are Back

The Bonnaroo Carbon Shredders are back at it again!  For the past three years, Green Mountain Coffee folks have trekked from Vermont to Manchester, Tennessee to teach music lovers at the Bonnaroo Music Festival how to reduce their Carbon Footprints.  We’re here again this year with support from Gardener’s Supply and Seventh Generation, which makes for a killer combination at Bonnaroo.

The Carbon Shredders started off with a muddy beginning yesterday due to the torrential Tennessee rain that night. Luckily, we had a beautiful day yesterday for the general gates to open. We've got a great group of people to help start the shred-olution this year! What a way to use your CAFE Time!

Our main focus this year is around promoting small behavioral changes that make an impact on energy use. Line drying your clothes on a clothesline is one way we're showing people how to save money and energy. Gardening cuts your energy use and brings back the connection to your local food systems.

This is only the first day but we've talked to over 200 Bonnaroovians about Carbon Shredders!  Can't wait to see what the next few days bring.

Ask the Coffee Lab: Why Do Cuppers Slurp?

Welcome to the June edition of Ask the Coffee Lab!

This month we tackle a question asked by Melissa via our Facebook page:

“Why do cuppers slurp?”


To get to the crux of this slurping matter, we decided to record our coffee lab crew during a recent cupping session when we evaluate brewed coffee received from origin.  Check out Ed, Stacy, Shannon, Brent and, little ol’ me as we answer “Why do cuppers slurp?”

Employee River Rescue on Tennessee River

Volunteerism is at the heart of our Corporate Social Responsibility programs. Every full-time employee can take upGMCR Employees cleaning up Tennessee River to 52-hours of paid time-off to volunteer for an organization they feel passionate about (read more about our Workplace Volunteerism).

A company tradition in Vermont has been to cleanup one of the nearby rivers as part of American River’s National River Cleanup. In Vermont we’ve been organizing a company-wide River Cleanup since 2005. As we’ve become a national company, expanding to locations in Tennessee and Washington, we want to continue our long tradition of volunteerism.

Green Mountain Coffee employee pulls bike from Tennessee RiverIn early April, employees from our Knoxville, TN facility organized and participated in their own River Cleanup. In total, 21 Green Mountain employees scoured the river banks and river bottom, removing approximately 1500 lbs of trash from the Tennessee River.

Although most of the trash included food containers or drink bottles, there were, as with past Cleanups, some interesting items pulled out of the river. Among the items retrieved were car hoods, bicycles, commodes, and fuel tanks.

Volunteer events not only benefit the communities we work in but also provide fun and team building. It’s just one part of what makes this company a great place to work!

Update: 80-count K-Cup Boxes: More Joe for Less Dough--Announcing a New Arrival!

6/1/10 Update: Back in the spring, many of you responded to the blog post below, asking Green Mountain Coffee to add more 80-count boxes to our product selection.  And we heard you, loud and clear!  Although we do not have plans of doing any major expansion to our offering of 80-count boxes of K-Cups, we are pleased to announce one new arrival:  Caribou Daybreak Morning Blend.  For those of you who are already fans of this coffee in the 24-count box and are looking to buy more and save, then this new 80-count is for you!


If you are a serious coffee drinker like me who goes through boxes of K-Cup® faster than the weather changes here in Vermont, or if you're just looking to stock up and save, we have the perfect solution for you: 80-count K-Cup boxes of your favorite coffees from our family of brands.  As of June 1, 2010, we're pleased to be adding a new 80 count box to the mix:

The 80-count box not only gives you more coffee, it makes your wallet happier, too.  It takes over three 24-count boxes to equal 80 K-Cups, so buying one 80-count box instead of 3+ of the 24-counts saves you almost $3; not to mention you get free shipping (within the contiguous US only) when you order from our site. And if you're a Café EXPRESS member, you'll save even more!

Someone once said, "Everybody should believe in something. I believe I'll have another coffee." With the 80-count K-Cup box, you will have more coffee on hand and you'll save money—which makes having another coffee easier than ever!

Check out the members of the 80-count family by clicking on the K-Cup lid of your choice:
