A small panel of local and international judges selected 20 of the best coffees submitted and ranked them from 1-20 over three days of cupping.
The first CCS Acevedo Cup was held in December 2016, and thesecond in January 2018. The intention is to hold an annual event, but of course, we must schedule the competition according to the coffee harvest, which was a little later this time around.
This blend, which placed fourth in the 2018 competition, was created by the team at Fairfield Trading, whose palates are renowned in Colombian Specialty Coffee. They selected these coffees based on their cup profiles, and blended them to combine complementing flavors, and create greater complexity. The result is an 88-point cup with florals, fruit and a lingering finish.
This blend is the work of two sets of brothers, Oscar Ferney and William Arley Cruz and Jamir and Dionar Aleis Useche Gonzalez.
