You guys are opening a big can o' worms here!
A couple years ago right after I finished setting up my Weber 1000/RK Drum Coffee roaster, I went to buy some green beans from a local roaster and was treated to an impromptu cupping session. It was an eye opening and hair raising experience. I didn't care for any of it and am not a black coffee drinker, but looking back it made me appreciate the palates of the experienced cuppers, and then when I roasted a batch of Ethiopian Sidamo and let it rest a few days and poured my first shot of it and the "hint of fresh blueberries" the cupper noted shone through, I felt like I had arrived!
