Let the cupping began, but not like this!
Your's truly with an admittedly psychotic expression. I cannot remember
but maybe this was the 4th or 5th "flight" of the day. That
would explain it...
The organizers were concerned that having the event in a smaller city,
in smaller hotel, would make it more difficult to manage the variables.
Cupping is, essentially, a huge effort to reduce variables to the absolute
minimum so that there is nothing to interfere between the stimulus (that
is, the coffee) and the human response to it. And in fact the event in
Matagalpa went very smoothly...
