That's funny... :D
From the link.....
"I can't do this anymore"
"After the relentless tasting, Lorenzo poured himself a cup of Cuvée that he'd brewed several hours prior. He originally considered the batch foul by his normal standards, but after a few hours of cupping the big brands it took on an entirely new character: it was suddenly really, really good."
funny stuff :D

LOL! I know.. I've been there. Co worker decided to do a cupping session with the available coffees from the office coffee machine.. I was "the" coffee guy and he wanted to me to participate. I reluctantly did and literally uttered the same words only after the 1st taste.

Oh. My. God. The comments section is as hilarious as the rest of the article.
"Tim Withington · Top Commenter · C.E.O. at Me PLC "It tastes like unhappy children".
So how many "unhappy children" has Lorenzo "tasted" then?"
"Van Edwards · Fayetteville, Georgia Read it again. It had the aroma of unhappy children. I have smelled many an unhappy child.."
It does say at the top in quotes, incorrectly, that he tasted unhappy children though. Seriously though, loved this article. Being raised in a household where if I didn't like the flavors/textures of the meal presented I could make my own supper free of consequence, I'm one picky bastard.
