2011 World Cup Tasters – Maastricht, Netherlands


The World Cup Tasters Championship awards the professional coffee cupper who demonstrates speed, skill, and accuracy in distinguishing the taste differences in specialty coffees.

Coffees of the world have many distinct taste characteristics and in this competition format the objective is for the cupper to discriminate between the different coffees.  Three cups are placed in a triangle, with 2 cups being identical coffees and one cup being a different coffee.  Using skills of smell, taste, attention and experience, the cupper will identify the odd cup in the triangle as quickly as they can.  A total of 8 triangles are placed in each round.  The top 8 competitors with the most correct answers and the fastest time proceed to the next Semi-Finals round.  Then the top 4 will compete again in the Finals round to determine the next World Cup Tasters Champion.
