From the Cupping Sessions page, find your new cupping session that you just created. Because you own the cupping session, the blue pen icon under the "Samples information" column will be available. This icon will also show how many samples are included in the cupping, and how many of them have sample information added already.
Once you have the sample information screen open, you can enter or edit any information about the sample, including:
- Name - the name of the sample
- Sample Type - this is a dropdown menu that includes Offer, Pre-Shipment, Landed, Type, Stocklot, Other
- Description - a brief description of the sample
- Reference Number - if your company tracks reference numbers on the samples
- External ID - if your company has specific IDs or tracking numbers that they use, that can be entered here
- Species - this is a dropdown menu that includes Arabica, Robusta, and Liberica
- Process Name - you can enter the name of the process, this is a text field
- Varietals - this is a text field where you can enter varietal info on the sample
- Crop Year - this is a dropdown menu where you can select the crop year of the sample
- Moisture - this field allows you to select the moisture level of the sample by using the up or down arrows
- Country - this is a dropdown menu with a list of the countries so you can select where the sample is from
- Region Name - you can enter the region the sample is from in this text field
- Producer Name - you can enter the name of the producer of the sample in this text field

None of these fields are required.
The fields with a magnifying glass icon are all searchable from the Advanced Search screen.
Each sample in your session will be identified by a tab at the top of the screen. Make sure you save each sample before navigating to the next. If you try to navigate without saving, you will see a warning pop up.
When you are done adding the sample information, you can navigate back to the cupping sessions page by selecting "Cupping Sessions" from the top navigation pane.
