Before the official event, 50 Panamanian judges will have pre-selected coffee samples in preliminary tastings to be held on 2nd and 3rd of May, these samples are what the international judges will take into account in order to choose the 20 to be auctioned in June.

The activity, according to SCAP, is open to all natural or legal persons engaged in the production and preparation of coffee for domestic consumption or export.

The rules for participating in the auction are: the coffee must be delivered milled, in bags of 50 pounds, it must be identified, tied and raw, and up to six lots may be entered.


National regulations are to be adjusted to conform to the Association Agreement with the European Union, giving added value to designations of origin or geographical identifications.
