Cupping is for Everyone
“I’ve always had a fraught relationship with cupping. (Being corrected on tasting notes, embarrassed, not knowing what bergamot tastes like.)
So I wanted rainbow cupping spoons, to disarm something that scared me. It reminds me that I can be myself – femme, queer, biracial, sensitive – and also do my job and taste coffee. All those things are possible at once!
In Feb of 2018, I started the Rainbow Spoon project. I mailed out a rainbow spoon, for free, to anyone who asked. To rad, amazing women, femmes & nb folks, and our allies. “
I’m so proud to call Umeko my friend and it’s such a cool thing to be able to share and amplify the Rainbow Cupping Spoon Project for Canadian Baristas and those who love the flavour spectrum of coffee. These spoons are the perfect weight and shape. I think you’ll love them.
Happy cupping everybody!
