SCA Cup Tasters 2024

The SCA UK is delighted to be hosting Cup Tasters at Caffè Culture!

The Specialty Coffee Association UK Chapter returns for another year at Caffè Culture, this time to host the a two day heat of Cup Tasters at Caffe Culture.

Complete with a brew bar, specialist exhibitors and competition programme, enjoy sensory experiences from cuppings, tea and food pairings to masterclasses and tastings. 

This competition draws in the best palates in the UK coffee industry.

Contestants have to slurp their way through 8 sets of triangle tests (three “cups” of coffee where two are the same and one differs) to spot the odd one out. The competition gets increasingly harder as the coffees in each set get increasingly similar. The results are instant as contestants lift their cups to discover if a red dot on the base tells them they have spotted the odd one out. It’s the coffee equivalent of a penalty shoot out!
