The Cup of Excellence is a prestigious competition held annually with the goal of selecting the finest coffees of their respective countries. The process for awarding the winning coffees is rigorous blind analysis by a jury of national and international professional cuppers (tasters). The winning lots are then sent to an international auction which fetch high prices across the board. It's a win-win: normalizing higher prices for coffee growers and incentivizing these producers to grow the best possible coffees.
Specifically, this lot won 7th place in the 2018 Cup of Excellence. It was produced by Lucas German Melo on his farm El Cairo which is located in Nariño, Colombia. It is comprised of Caturra, Colombia, and Typica varieties and grown at 2000 meters above sea level. Lucas' coffee scored 90.53 points and deservedly so! This coffee in instant form tastes like panella, citrus and tropical fruits and even a bit floral!
Available in our 6 cup box or 48 cup CUBE. Each packet contains 5g of freeze dried coffee. We recommend 275g of filtered water (hot or cold), give it a stir and enjoy!
