186 Different Coffees In Salvadoran Cup of Excellence

The qualifying coffee samples will be closer to participating in the international auction to be held in June 2009.

Friday, March 27, 2009

La Prensa Grafica published on its website: "The samples that are selected at this preliminary stage will be tasted by a national jury from April 20 to 24. Subsequently, from April 27 to May 1, an international jury (composed of 22 international jurors, a leading judge and a group of observers) will select the winning samples that will participate in the international auction on June 4."

The coffee auction allows the placement of the product at above-market prices. After last year's edition of the Cup of Excellence, "a pound of coffee from Finca La Ilusion, which won first place in the contest, was placed at a price of $20.10/lb., i.e. $2,010 per quintal when a pound of gourmet coffee costs around $1.65/lb., on average, in the market."
