Coffees of the Year

The most prestigious annual event for producers around the world, the COTY competition celebrates the most exceptional coffees. Only coffees scoring 84 or higher are eligible to compete; once qualified, the coffees are then vetted bi-annually by a team of Q-graders, SCAA certified cuppers and other industry cupping experts. Only the top 10 coffee samples will earn the right to proudly say they are among the “Coffees of the Year”. Elegantly set in a lounge like atmosphere, the COTY competition welcomes attendees to sample the world’s best coffees alongside the producers whose skill and dedication is unmatched in the industry. If you are a true connoisseur of coffee, this is one event you have to attend.
