Auction begins soon for sixth Colombia Land of Diversity coffee quality contest

More than 1000 coffee growers from 15 regions in Colombia will showcase their best coffee lots from the November-February harvest in the sixth Colombia Land of Diversity quality contest.

This competition is organised and run by the Colombian Coffee Growers Federation (FNC) and rewards the effort, dedication, and commitment to quality of the Colombian coffee farmers.

This year, 1110 coffee lots were presented in the different municipalities of the country.

To enter, the coffee growers visited the closest point of purchase of the Cooperatives, to deliver the full lot and to get paid for the coffee. A group of cuppers did the selection of the lots with 86-plus score on the Specialty Coffee Association cupping protocol. From the 1.110 lots that participated, 210 passed to the second cupping round.

The best lots of every region were cupped at the second cupping to select the best lots from the 210 cupped.

In the third cupping round, the cuppers evaluated the final lots to select the best of the best. Now, the top 26 lots are selected and international judges from different parts of the world are giving their own scores and getting positively impressed.

“Today, we celebrate the diversity of Colombian coffees and growing regions by honouring coffee growers and their farms,” says the FNC.

The Colombia Land of Diversity auction will commence on 14 May 2021 at 1pm London time.
