The Cup of Excellence Brazil is one of the most prestigious competitions among the participating countries.
It was in Brazil that the Cup of Excellence was born in 1999. This set the tone for the high standards and the level of quality which has been improved year by year in the field of coffee production.
Brazil is also the largest producer of coffee in the world. So the challenge of identifying the 20 best coffees is a tall order.
This lot bought at auction obtained the 3rd best mark with a mark of 90.83. All lots of 90+ get what is known as a President ’Presidential award’. These are the best coffees in the world and only around twenty lots, spread all over the planet, have this quality.
