Bringing together the best coffees in Brazil

encouraging the development and improvement of national production

Coffee of the Year

Created in 2012, the COFFEE OF THE YEAR aims to bring together the best coffees in Brazil and elect the highlights of the year, thus encouraging the development and improvement of national production and the dissemination of new coffee origins.

The contest has two phases. The first is to receive samples from producers throughout Brazil that are roasted and tasted by Q-Graders and R-Graders licensed by the CQI (Coffee Quality Institute). In the second phase, the best samples participate in the International Coffee Week and are tasted by national and international buyers.

Of these samples, the 21 best classified will go to the final of the contest (10 samples of arabica, 5 of camphor, 3 of induced arabic fermentation and 3 of induced camphor fermentation). The most punctuated and voted sample was revealed and awarded on the last day of the event (11/20). The contest is aimed at producers from all regions of Brazil.
