Remember that cupping I said I was going to host? Well, its been and gone and it was fantastic!

Another week down with some delicious coffees to help me through. Once again another very smooth Colombian on day 6 and a surprisingly tasty Guatemalan on day 7. I wasn't expecting the peaches and cream to come through as well as they did.
