congratulations to buyers! I particularly liked #1, 2, 6, 10 and 12, I would have put my money on #6 if I had some, though great to know that one won't be shipping too far away.

I liked 6 a lot too. We were either going for 5 or 6. I decided on 5 (Malacara) after brewing them both the AM of the auction. Also, 15 and 24 were hidden gems, super bright coffees. It was a bizarre auction - actually looked like ti was going to end very early, almost no activity, and then a surge. I think Rod Lazar had something to do with it, but he hasn't responded to my PMs

let's cup through this ... together.

Dear all!!!
Thank you for your support and comments on this year's CoE coffees and auction... we were thrilled to see the results! The producers were happy, the whole event was very unifying...
We all had a great time preparing, during (and after ;)) the auction! we've been celebrating its success all week long! Right Luis? (BTW, Stephen is right, Luis Rocks!)

Anyway, I'm sorry to hear some of u had trouble watching the live video.. but we'll post a little clip tomorrow, promise!


Maria Jose.

P.D. Big THANK YOU and Congrats to all winning bidders, let us know if we can do anything for you, ok?
