Prior to the event start date, SET VC students will receive a box containing roasted samples for three cuppings sessions, sample placement instructions, CoE score sheets, an official CoE cupping spoon, and other goodies from our sponsors. The SET VC will kick off with a special presentation by Head Judge Scott Conary. Scott will teach students how to cup and score using the CoE score sheet and explain what makes CoE award-winning coffees so special. At this time, students will learn how to set up the event cuppings in the comfort of their homes or cupping labs.
After the initial presentation students should cup the coffees mailed to them, score the coffees using the CoE Score sheets, and return their completed score sheets to the event coordinators.
During the four week event, students will have access to recordings of the webinar sessions hosted by our instructors. Students will have the opportunity to have their questions answered in special office hours zoom calls. Students may also communicate directly with their fellow participants, CoE staff, and the instructor via this event’s WhatsApp group.
After submitting their score sheets, students will receive individualized evaluations of their work and reports compiled by the Instructor. These reports will be based off the same format and data CoE uses to select cuppers for their National Juries. The report will provide insight regarding students’ cupping skills and their assessments of the coffees that were evaluated.
On the final day of the event students will join our instructor for a virtual presentation of the data collected from all participants. Our instructor will answer questions about the coffees’ attributes, the cupping data, and much more.
