Time: 5:30 PM
Location: Ex Hacienda San Francisco Toxpan de Córdoba, Veracruz.

*Traditional Washed Processes: Lots allowed within this category are exclusively those processed using the traditional washed method, where coffee cherries undergo meticulous washing to remove the outer skin and mucilage. This ensures that only coffees with the distinctive attributes of the washed process, such as clean acidity and clarity of flavor, are considered for evaluation in the competition

**Traditional Honey & Natural Processes: Lots eligible for this category encompass coffees processed through the honey and natural methods, where the cherries are either partially or wholly dried with their mucilage intact. This category celebrates the unique flavor profiles derived from these processing techniques, ranging from the fruity sweetness of honey-processed coffees to the robust, fermented notes of natural-processed ones.

***Experimental: Washed, honey, naturals with processes that are differentiated from the traditional processing methods and/or have undergone an innovation at a stage of preparing the lot. Done with the purpose of developing complex or exotic flavors and
aromas in a cup, produced in a biochemically natural way.

*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.
