The "Cup of Excellence" is a most esteemed award given out for top coffees.
These awards come from a strict competition that selects the very best coffee produced in that country for that particular year. These winning coffees are chosen by a select group of national and international cuppers and are cupped at least five different times during the competition process. Only coffees that continuously score high enough are allowed to move forward in the competition. The final winners are awarded the prestigious Cup of Excellence and sold to the highest bidder during an internet auction.
The Cup of Excellence program builds the bridge between the quality-minded farmer, the quality-focused roaster and eventually the consumer who finds coffees he truly loves and at the same time knows that the farmer has been well compensated. This unique program has changed the way the world thinks about coffee as the lives of producers are changed and long-term relationships are forged.
