See what our members are saying:

  • “COE has given us the opportunity to meet the best coffee producers in the world today. It has changed our personal and professional lives by continuing to inspire and motivate us to the be the best in the industry. We have been fortunate to be able to purchase COE winner lots and bring them to our corner of Europe...Sharing these exclusive coffees with other coffee enthusiasts is one of the best parts of our day.”

    Jordan Dabov DABOV SPECIALTY COFFEE - Sofia, Bulgaria
  • "COE has always played a huge role in our company. Our goal is to buy a lot from every auction and attend as many juries as possible. We would like our baristas and customers to enjoy the great quality of COE coffee, both served in our stores as black coffee and by the bag to bring back home."

    Synøve Nesøen KAFFEBRENNERIET - Oslo, Norway
  • “COE was a real eye opener in terms of everything – quality and understanding that there is not only one country’s coffee profile ---I started to understand the difference in Honduras’ regions or a Costa Rican Honey or a Pacamara variety. COE for me is not only a family which I am dedicated to … it gave me a broader understanding of how good coffee can be.”

    Vytautas Kratulis HURACAN COFFEE - Vilnius, Lithuania
  • "COE has been a great forum to interact with like minded coffee people and producers. Starting out, COE gave us the opportunity to cup and access stunning coffees, to cup in a competition format and have access to understanding other markets and countries.”

    Mark Dundon Seven Seeds - Melbourne, Australia
  • “I respect the competition since the top of the specialty coffees are rewarded and available for me to buy. I could not find them if the competition did not exist.”

    Nikos Psomas MOKKA COFFEE - Athens, Greece
