Cup of Excellence scales back for 2016

Postby RolandGlew » Sat Jul 18, 2015 8:14 am

Press release from Alliance for Coffee Excellence is here.

Basically, of the 10 countries they have done in recent years, they are only going to run comps in 5 next year. The ones losing their competitions are - Mexico, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Rwanda & Burundi.

I'd say that speciality coffee is pretty precarious in those places (with the exception of El Salvador), so we can only see what effects pulling their CoE competitions has on those farming communities next year.
