Cupping is the specialty coffee industry's standard method for tasting and assessing coffees. It aspires to eliminate the confounding variables of brewing to give an unadulterated glimpse into the quality and potential of a coffee. Consistency in variables is important, so we'd encourage you to check out the SCA's suggested protocols.

These cupping bowls come to us via Barista Hustle, a coffee education platform dedicated to providing coffee pros and hobbyists alike with the tools and know-how to elevate their understanding of and skills related to coffee. While most cupping bowls are ceramic, Barista Hustle’s are made of food grade polyethylene. This makes them highly durable and featherlight, meaning they won’t chip in your luggage or as you toss them into the sink, unlike heavier ceramic bowls. They also sport a compact, stackable design (most ceramic bowls are big, clunky pieces that don’t fit so snugly when stacked), with ridges that allow for faster drying after a rinse. They’re perfect for travel, say for a buying trip or tasting event.

Additionally, because of polyethylene’s thermal properties, these bowls absorb less heat than ceramic bowls do. This means that your brewing water should maintain temperature better, resulting in better extraction and a clearer cupping experience. Finally, these cups are also easy and convenient to clean and dry - just rinse them out and stack them somewhere to drip.
