Cupping is to coffee what tasting is to wine. Cuppin is the app we're building to help people find, compare, and enjoy coffees from around the world.
It's also a great excuse to try a lot of good coffees and get rocked on caffeine for a 24 hour coding competition.
Take a look at our Flickr pool for a photo series about a real life cupping. While RailsDay 2006 starts at 9:00 PM over here on the West Coast … we figure we'd get the party started a little earlier by cupping six coffees at 8:00.
If you'd like to join us via IRC, point your favorite client at irc.freenode.net and join #cuppin … the next 24 hours are going to be a little crazy!
