The cupping took place in a room that felt like a laboratory in its pristine feel. We each donned aprons, grabbed a pencil and a clipboard with a "sensory evaluation" form, and stood around a table in groups of six, each of us standing by a numbered coffee pot filled with a handful of coffee grounds next to two empty cups. On the table was a color wheel filled in with flavors starting broad in the center to very specific on the outer ring. For instance, some of the center flavors are "fruity," "floral," "nutty/cocoa," and "spices." Under "fruity," you can drill down to "berry" from the options, then get as specific as "blackberry."
