This year continues where we left off last year. We have a solid season of Specialty Coffee Auctions. Our work continues with the Alliance for Coffee’s ‘Cup of Excellence’ programme, providing them with their auction platform. We are also partnering with other organisations to bring a stronger proposition to the coffee industry. This means we can help build value for producers and help market their coffee to a global audience.
We have many of our producers from last year returning. We look forward to seeing how this year’s set of auctions compare and are excited by the prospect of working with new producers and organisations. It is exciting to see how much we can continue to help them grow the interest in their coffee, their methods, their farms and their stories.
We are passionate about making sure quality coffee is rewarded with prices worthy of the work that goes in to creating such unique produce. We will be making an announcement soon about how we plan to tackle larger volume sales through auction.
This year we have the following auctions lined and there will be more to come I am sure:
- 16th April – ACDI / VOCA, “Philippine Coffee Quality Competition Auction“
- 24th May – Yave’s Blockchain Auction for ANACAFE in partnership with Perfect Daily Grind.
- 4th June – Gesha Village
- 11th June – El Injerto
- 18th June – Santa Felisa
- 27th June – Trabocca’s ‘The Ethiopian Cup‘
- November – Port of Mokha
This list will be growing as we talking to a number of producers and farming groups about how we can help them reach a global audience.
We will also be in Boston and Berlin for the SCA events this Spring and Summer, so we look forward to seeing you there.
