The Grounds Roastery Colombian Coffee Cupping Challenge

An interactive cupping, designed to challenge your senses in a night dedicated to a new wave of Colombian producers.

The Grounds Coffee Roastery and Cofinet are excited to present an interactive cupping evening to challenge your senses.

As one of our longest standing suppliers, we’ll share a bit about our history with Cofinet, shouting some brews and food, showcasing some great beans and giving a way a bunch of gear.

Tickets are $5 and all proceeds will be donated to our friends over at CafeSmart!

We’ll showcase a few of our favourite producers from Huila, Colombia, including:

– Luis Anibal – Villa Betulia – grows over 30 different varietals of coffee on his 20ha farm just outside of Acevedo, Huila
– Hector Zuniga & Rafael Amaya – neighbouring producers from Timana, Huila that push fermentation to extraordinary lengths

Come and test your cupping skills! We will be showcasing several coffee varietals from all three coffee producers. To test your sensory abilities we are going to format the cupping as a triangulation. For those that don’t know what a triangulation cupping is, each sample set is laid out with three cups – two of the cups containing the same sample and one cup being an odd one out. All you need to do is pick the odd cup! There is no time limit however to make things a little more spicy, you’ll also need to pick the varietal (multiple choice) of the dominant pair!

Everyone is welcome to participate and there is no cupping experience required however it will help! Come to taste some epic coffees, test yourself and have a bit of fun.



Wednesday 27 March 2019 from 6pm to 8.30pm


CafeSmart Donation: $5.00
