Comprising 2 Big Dippers and 1 Little Dipper, the Cupper's Kit from Umeshiso is ideal for beginners and advanced tasters alike.
With both styles of spoon to most easily and efficiently perform all cupping functions, the Cupper's Kit is fully equipped to help you enjoy the process and cup confidently.
Which spoon is best for cupping?
Breaking: During the cupping process, an aromatic crust of coffee grounds forms on the surface of the cupping bowl. After four minutes, you can break the crust with any style of cupping spoon – Big or Little Dipper.
Skimming: After you break the crust, you need to use two Big Dippers to skim the remaining bits of foam and coffee particles from the surface of the bowl. Little Dippers aren’t great for this. A single spoon won’t do the trick either. It takes two Big Dippers.
Slurping: This is when you dip a cupping spoon into the coffee, then slurp directly from the spoon. You can use either style for slurping, though the deeper bowl of the Little Dipper means less spillage and many find it’s easier to slurp from, making the Little Dipper the tasting spoon of choice for coffee professionals.
