Joios is an eating and drinking community, open to anyone who wants to share fun tasting experiences and help build a better system for finding great new flavors.
We created Joios to harness the power of the crowd to sort through abundant food and drink options. Community drives our filtering process. By empowering people to taste great arrays and record scores in a database, we develop a pool of unbiased scores. A typical tasting event might include six premium Spanish wines or six dark chocolates.
Our iPhone App records the ratings from the blind tastings, allowing tasters to remember what they like. Our TastePeers engine matches patterns among tasters to deliver the most relevant recommendations - based on a taster’s own taste. We're using Meetup - our NYC neighbors - to register people for events.
We picked the name – “joios” is the Old French root of “joyous” – to reflect the tone of our Joios Community. Our technology and algorithm are sophisticated. Our requirements - blind tastings, no producer influence – are strict. But our events are always fun.
We hold tastings regularly. We work with friends to set them up - in homes, restaurants, country clubs, etc. We often hold them in conjunction with other events. We love to partner with others who are passionate about flavor.
