LEARN MORE ABOUT COFFEE OF THE YEAR AWARD
Quality contest and Coffee of the Year (COY) award chooses the best Brazilian arabicas and canephoras by popular vote and professional judges’ evaluation.
Created in 2011, the COY contest celebrates the coffees from Brazil and rewards the bests as a way to encourage the improvement in coffee production and discovery of new quality coffee producing regions.
The contest is divided in 2 phases. In the first one, the samples are sent in by producers from around the country, roasted and cupped by CQI (Coffee Quality Institute) certified Q-Graders. In the second phase, the best 180 are displayed in the cupping tables during the Brazil International Coffee Week and are cupped by Brazilian and international buyers. In the same cupping room, the best 15 (10 arabicas and 5 canephoras) are brewed and blind-tasted by the event’s attendees. Most voted coffees are disclosed in the last day of event in the Great Auditorium in one of the most exciting moments of the event.
This contest is opened to producers of all producing regions in Brazil. Winners’ ceremony has free admission and simultaneous translation.
