    Cup of Excellence - ouch.

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Im still trying to source a CoE coffee but it is looking harder every day.

    The below is from one of our suppliers...

    As a rule Andy we do not bid on Cup of Excellence coffees unless we have a confirmed order from one of our Roasters; COE prices are generally overvalued against the true quality of the coffee & why should we buy a stock lot of coffee that could potentially sit in our Store for 12 months & may only have interest with 1% of the roasting community.
    Last night for instance the Colombian COE Auction was held & we placed bids on behalf of one of our roasters but the coffee ended up selling for 150% more than our bid price. In fact the top placed coffee sold at the equivalent of A$ 54 / kilo at origin by the time you cost the coffee through to Melbourne your potentially looking at a 90 dollar per kilo coffee

    Behmor Brazen - $249 - Free Freight
    Heres some interesting notes on the Columbian COE:

    Personally the best Ive had from there so far has been the Mesa de los Santos. A very tastey bean and quite reasonably priced. The US distributor is selling it at $1.85US/lb for a single bag. The local roasters here are selling it out the door at $20US/lb. Just a *bit of a mark-up there.

    Java "Me love Mesa" phile
