SET VC students will receive a box containing roasted samples for three cuppings, sample placement, instructions, CoE score sheets, an official CoE cupping spoon, and other goodies from our sponsors. The Program will kick off with a special presentation where Scott will instruct students how to cup and score using the CoE score sheet, and explain exactly what makes CoE award-winning coffees so special.

Students will have 10 days to cup & score the coffees, and then return their filled-out score sheets to the course coordinators.

During the cupping days students will be able to sign into special video sessions led by CoE staff and Scott to have any questions answered. as well as a WhatsApp group to ask questions and meet fellow participants.

After the cupping, students will receive a special report compiled by Scott that is based on the same format CoE uses to select cuppers for their National Juries around the world.
