Topic: Cupping & Rest (3 msgs / 78 lines)
1) From: Bob Hazen
Joe,
I wonder if you would weigh in regarding rest and cupping?  My understanding 
is that when cupping, the beans have rested very little.  They're used 
hours, if not right after, roasting.  In my experience, some coffees are 
delightful right out of the roaster with fleeting taste components that 
vanish after a day.  Other coffees are lackluster and don't hit their stride 
until a few days later.  We've all heard tales of people finding month-old 
beans that somehow were pushed to the back of the shelf; and the amazement 
of their flavor with a month's rest.  So how does this "rest phenomenon" 
relate to cupping?
Bob

Also...
In cupping competitions like COE's, to what level (C+, FC etc) are the beans
roasted? Does this matter?

Cupping for defects can be done immediately post roast and usually a light
roast. Cupping to determine which of say 5 finalists of a particular
origin/varietal to buy a bag or bags of I both roast to approximate
"production roast" and rest 3 days minimum usually more like 5, sometimes
re-cupping a few days later to verify finalists and final choice(s).
Don't have a clue what "the industry standard" is, just what I try to do.
