The End Of Scoring Coffee via @coffeeadventure

There comes a time when you realize that something just isn’t working. That something is scoring coffee on here. Since I started this site in Dec. of ’09 I have been scoring my coffee. At first, it was fun. It showed the companies whose coffee I was reviewing just how much I liked it. Fast forward a year or so, I started to get frustrated with scoring coffee and almost gave it up when I thought I would just change the format I used. What seemed like a good idea once again turned out bad. Three scoring format changes later and I’m starting to realize that it still isn’t working out. I could beat myself up for taking so long to realize it, but I won’t. Instead, I am taking this as an opportunity to learn and grow on here.
