This is also more likely to happen when the cupping is strictly blind. When I'm evaluating to make purchase decisions all I see is a number and it isn't until after I'm done that I reference that back to any other information I have about the coffee.

My favorite coffee on the table today was also the lowest grade. Sometimes that happens because coffee grades are based primarily on physical qualities, not sensory ones. There's often a correlation there, but exceptions are legion.

Today's cupping session has a coffee that was pre-roasted by the importer. It's easy to tell which one that is because it's lighter than the sample roasting spec.

Packed an order for shipping. This particular customer is a regular but their order is for an amount of product that basically maximizes shipping cost per unit product. They're paying that and I'll sell them what they want, but if they were willing to add or subtract one from their usual order and adjust order frequency to compensate they'd be saving so much money on shipping.

It's 5:13PM, which is entirely too late to be eating lunch so I'm just going to pretend that a cookie is lunch so as to not spoil dinner.

Wrote a check for the house repairs I've been trying to get done for the past year. I'll need to write 2 more of those as the work progresses and when it's finished, and then we'll need to sort out what the next repair priority is. The house is over a century old and while the bones of it are extremely good (designed and built by a carpenter who intended to live there) there's a lot to maintain.
