STARTER PACK: 2 Gold Big Dippers + 1 Rainbow Little Dipper + 5 Stickers + 1 Pencil.
The Starter Pack is perfect for cuppers of all experience levels. It includes all the spoons you need to cup coffee: two Gold Big Dippers for skimming and one Rainbow Little Dipper for slurping. The Big Dippers can also double as slurping spoons!
This kit also includes three round stickers and two rectangular stickers - ideal cupping clipboards, notebooks, laptops and water bottles. Each sticker carries words of advice to help any cupper feel more calm and confident. These tips come from me, Umeko, and from other experienced coffee professionals in the @umeshiso_ Instagram community.
Last but not least, the Starter Pack includes a pencil for taking cupping notes, emblazoned with the words "Your Tasting Experience Is Valid."
The Starter Pack comes gift-ready in its own box. If you'd like to include a gift note please select "this order is a gift" during checkout, then select "add gift message for free." Remember to write who the gift is for and who it's from in your note!
Umeshiso carries two styles of cupping spoon: the Big Dipper and the Little Dipper.

Everything on my webshop is priced on a sliding scale. Just choose the price that is comfortable for you. My goal is to make each item as accessible as possible, to folks from all different parts of the coffee industry. It works because the community truly observes the honor system: those who are able to pay more make it possible for others with less resources to pay less.

Gorgeous spoons! They were a teeny bigger than I anticipated but are a fun addition to my kitchen show offs and fun to use on mornings when I just want to feel classy.
