Developing Better Cupping Practices

There's a lot that's written about why people cup coffee or how to get better at it, but an area that's often overlooked is how even though there are standards for cupping, there is also room in those standards for companies to make deliberate decisions about various aspects of their own practices. So when I was asked to write an article, I decided to write about a process for making those decisions. One of the interesting things I found when trying this at my own shop was that doing this has the potential to allow everybody in a company to deliver more useful cupping observations without actually developing better cupping skills.
