Brazil 2023

CUP of EXCELLENCE: Brazil Cup of Excellence 2023 is made up of three distinct categories: the Dry Process Category which highlights Naturals; the Wet Process Category which includes any method where cherries undergo de-pulping such as Washed, Honey, Pulped Naturals, and semi-washed; and the Experimentals Category which includes both wet and dry processes with unique treatments, ensuring no additives other than water are introduced. The Cup of Excellence recognizes the top 10 coffees of each category that have been deemed exceptional by our International Jury, each scoring 87 and above and undergoing a minimum of five distinct cupping sessions. Coffees are packaged in 30kg boxes, each containing two 15kg vacuum-packed bags.

NATIONAL WINNERS: Brazil 2023 are also separated by process. These are coffees that achieved a score of 85+ points during the International Phase, evaluated rigorously by both the Cup of Excellence National and International Juries. These coffees have been cupped a minimum of 5 times during the cupping process.

*The winning coffees have been selected and scored in blind cuppings. The winning farm and the specific coffee lot information is submitted by each farmer and is not known to the public until the awards ceremony.  ACE assumes the farm information is correct and up to date but is not responsible should some information change before or after the auction.   Bidders should assess the value of each coffee based on quality in the cup and its appropriateness for their company. Farm information is for educational purposes only but can be used to help sell the winning coffees.
