Posted February 22nd, 2011 by wolfram with 3 Comments

Cupping Sheet 4 iPad

Posted December 9th, 2010 by wolfram with No Comments

I have already posted a number of documents for cupping and roast profile tracking which can be found here. Lately I moved certain documents over to my iPad since I find it quite handy to have them available on the run. I have updated the roast profile tracking document for iPad already, you can download it here.

If you want to track your cupping notes on the iPad as well, you can use this new document. It is based on the Cup of Excellence cupping sheets.

To be able to use the templates you need Numbers for iPad from Apple.

Opening up

Posted November 28th, 2010 by wolfram with 2 Comments

Dear readers,

I am thankful for the participation of all of you in the past years. It brings me great pleasure making my thoughts public, sharing and discussing them with you. In the past years a living coffee community has and still is growning in Germany and I feel that it is time to open my blog to international readers as well. In the future you will find both, english as well as german posts, on my blog.

Thanks again and keep up your participation.

Wolfram
