Great flavors, met all my expectations..
The objective of this exam is to calibrate a Q Grader with other Q Graders by testing with different coffee qualities as a reference. Calibration testing is conducted for Q Graders to exhibit agreement on the quality, and maintenance of the Q Grading Protocols, and to review the Q Grader Code of Ethics.
Calibration is necessary to renew a Q Grader in good standing if their license is approaching the 36-month expiration.
Date: February 12, 2023
Time: 8 AM to 6 PM
When Q Graders are not cupping frequently, and their taste acuity and attribute-scoring fall out of alignment, a Q Grader must be made inactive in the Q Grading service rotation unless they pass the Q Grader Calibration exam within the appropriate time frame.
