The Big Dipper: Golden Hour (Six Pack)

$30.00



As country artist Kacey Musgraves says, "you're my golden hour, the color of my sky." This classic gold finish goes with everything and pops beautifully in any setting. "And you know, you know everything's gonna be all right."

(And yes, these spoons are not just for cupping coffee - they're also perfect for ice cream, cereal, soup, and anything else you can eat with a spoon!)

It works because the community observes the honor system: those who are able to pay more make it possible for others with less resources to pay less.

๐Ÿ“ MATERIALS & DIMENSIONS: Umeshiso carries two styles of cupping spoon: the Big Dipper and the Little Dipper. Umeshiso spoons are made of stainless steel with a titanium anodized coating. They are dishwasher safe.

The Big Dipper is longer and lighter weight with a wider, flatter bowl. It has dual functionality and works great for both skimming and slurping.

The Big Dipper Specs

Weight: 44 - 46g
Handle Length: 5.5 in / 14 cm
Bowl Diameter: 2 in / 5 cm
Bowl Depth: 0.25 in / 0.6 cm

The Little Dipper is shorter, with a heavier weight and deeper bowl. It's great for long-haul cupping tables because the deeper bowl prevents spillage.

Handle Length: 4.5 in / 11.5 cm
Bowl Diameter: 1.9 in / 4.8 cm
Bowl Depth: 0.5 in / 1.1 cm

๐Ÿค” WHAT IS CUPPING?

What is cupping? Itโ€™s a way to evaluate coffee quality. Cupping is favored by coffee professionals because itโ€™s an easy way to taste multiple coffees at once. But anyone can do it!

If youโ€™d like to cup at home, you just need one or more coffees, a cupping spoon, and a few uniform-size cups in the 6- to 8-oz range.

Add 12 grams of ground coffee to each cup and pour hot water directly onto the grounds, filling the cup all the way to the top. An aromatic crust of coffee grounds will form on the surface. After four minutes, break the crusts with a cupping spoon. Then use the cupping spoon to dip into the coffee, which you slurp from the spoon.

It sounds totally weird but - well, yes it is totally weird. But fun! If you have never cupped before, we recommend checking out an online article or video tutorial - luckily there are tons! Just do a google search for "how to cup coffee".
