The Subasta Taza de la Excelencia is sponsodered by Costa Rica’s Instituto del Café de Costa Rica (ICAFE) and the Banco Nacional de Costa Rica (BNCR), Café de Altura de San Ramón, Exclusive Coffees, Ecom-MICoffee Corp, Café Import and CAFEOTECA.

Participating were coffee producers, processors and exporters registered with the ICAFE and coordinated by  the Asociación de Cafés Finos de Costa Rica (SCACR), the Cup of Excellence franchise representative in Costa Rica.

According to Joshua Navarrio, “the success is the result of hard work and constant improvements made during more than five years. I think the key is that all decisions have been made within the family. There are many people who we have to thank”.

Of the 117 coffee samples received, 70 were chosen in preselection and tasted by over five days. All the coffees with 85 points of more will now be tested by a 27 international judges panel from countries like Japan, United States, Australia, Germany and Holland, who will determine if the coffees will be able to participate in the auction.
