    Central American Cup of Excellence

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    How about a challenging wish list.....somewhat unobtainable I suspect >:(

    I was reading the latest coffeereview.com newsletter where they sampled and rated some of the Central American cup of excellence contestants. These coffees rated very highly.

    It would be great if we could get some of these..... ;)

    Re: Central American Cup of Excellence

    Ed,

    I understand the very fact that a coffee wins one of these awards makes it, expensive and very difficult to procure (if not unobtainable). I have a lot of familiarity with the impact winning a major trophy has on wine availability and pricing so I am not surprised this happens with coffee. On a related subject, one of the coffees to be listed for e upcoming November poll comes from a property that has previously produced a Cup of Excellence Award winner. Not to say this is what we are getting but we do know it will be a good one. I will enquire about availability of COE winners and respond here.

    Cheers,

    Graeme

    Thanks Graeme. I dont really hold any hope of getting any quantity of these beans. The article is a good read, and shows how competition (i.e. Cup of Excellence) can really improve the end product.

    Still....it would be nice to try some.

    Cheers
    Ed
