Cup of ExcellenceTorrefazione Gourmet is glad to present his Cup of Excellence coffees.

Cup of Excellence is the most prestigious award given to a fine quality coffee. The level of scrutiny that Cup of Excellence coffees undergo is unmatched anywhere in the coffee industry. All of the Cup of Excellence award winners are cupped at least 5 times (the 'Top 10' are cupped again) during the 3-week competition. During this selection process, thousands of cups are evaluated, tasted and scored based on their exemplary characteristics. The prices that these winnings coffees receive at auction have broken records and proven that there is a huge demand for these rare farmer identified coffees.

The Cup of Excellence program takes place in 10 specialty coffee producing countries in East Africa and in Central and South America.

See ACE website (Alliance for Coffee Excellence) for more information.
