Cupping Calendar — 2014

Please note that the previously listed January 2014 review subject (Real Blends: Blends Produced from Three or More Origins”) has been postponed one month. Cupping will occur in January and the article will appear for February.

At the beginning of each month a new feature article is published on the Coffee Review website. The planned cupping calendar for 2014 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 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 request that all roasters submitting coffees for a given article first query Jason Sarley at before sending their coffees.
