We publish coffee tasting reports on specific topics at the beginning of each month. The cupping for these tasting reports occurs in the prior month. The editorial calendar for 2022 appears below. This schedule is subject to change.
There is no charge for roasters to submit samples for reviews that are published in association with our tasting reports. However, we typically publish reviews only for the top-scoring coffees in each report so only a small percentage of coffees received will be reviewed. Because of the high volume of submissions, we cannot provide feedback on coffees not included in a monthly report.
Coffee Review also offers additional review services for roasters that wish to have their coffees review. Refer to our review services page for more information on getting coffees reviewed. Fees apply for commissioned reviews.
