Cupping Calendar – 2015

At the beginning of each month Coffee Review publishes a new tasting report with an article and associated reviews. The planned cupping calendar for 2015 is shown below. The schedule is subject to change. Professional roasters are encouraged to nominate their own coffees.

The window during which we accept coffees for these review articles is usually the tenth day through the twentieth day of the month prior to publication. For example, we plan to test coffees for the May article during the period April 10 through 20.

However, professional travel or other distractions may lead to modifications of the 10th through 20th schedule, so we ask that all roasters submitting coffees for a given article first query Jason Sarley at before sending their coffees.
