Cupping Notes

We meet a lot of people who can’t live without coffee – but not for the reasons you might think

Coffee isn’t just what gets us out of bed in the morning, nor is it just the medicine for Mondayitis (or getting through hump day, or recovery Sunday’s for that matter). Coffee is so much more. It is the lifeblood of communities all around the world, from the hills of Uganda to the suburbs of Brisbane.

We want to share some of these stories – notes really – about the coffee, the people and their lives.

Welcome to ‘Cupping Notes’.
