ACE Private Collection Auctions
Adhering to ACE’s mission of rewarding exemplary coffee farmers, we are proud to announce the launch of our Private Collection Auctions. By pinpointing exceptional producers with this program, we will curate auctions with organizations and farmers who best exemplify ACE’s standards with our Cup of Excellence programming. With these curated auctions, we hope to expand our reach and serve even more farmers worldwide.
We plan to work with farms, estates, and interested organizations who meet the rigorous standards that ACE has pioneered since its inception in 1999. If you are interested in partnering with us in a auction, please email [email protected].
Qima – Yemeni Specialty
