Excellence Cup: just the coffee auction to go

The first place winner of the Cup of Excellence Contest was awarded to the Salvadoran El Topazio plantation. The auction will be conducted on June 4.

Monday, May 4, 2009

Of the 60 coffee samples that the contest began with, 33 lots were selected to participate in the auction which will seek to obtain good prices from international buyers.

Maria José Huezo, Cup of Excellence project coordinator, told Laprensagrafica.com that "this year, despite having received fewer samples from participating plantations, the quality improved and, therefore, she hoped to break the selling-price record for the lots of coffee again. Last year, the price per quintal of coffee was $2,010."

Second and third place went to El Jocotillo and Fatima plantations.
