We are very pleased to collaborate with Alliance for Coffee Excellence on our (and their) first estate auction.
We have been keeping our eyes and taste buds on the look out for exceptional coffees that might have a chance to qualify in our first auction. This past week we began the hardest stage - choosing the qualifying coffees. Our own cupping team has been working tirelessly in making these hard choices and we have reached out to our cupper friends to help as well.
We are very excited and a little anxious, but we are confident our coffee friends will be happy with the lineup. We hope this becomes a yearly staple for us, it is a very rewarding exercise that ultimately benefits the whole crop.
Inevitably we will be asked if all our coffees will be auctioned so the short answer is, no. We are being extremely strict with what we are allowing to participate and because of this the quantities will be very small. Roasters and buyers we work with will still have direct access to our great coffees, only now you will also have access to the top .001 percent of our crop.
It’s a bit of a treasure hunt and it involves a lot of work.
We hope you enjoy our efforts.
