Meet the finest coffee growers

Production in Brazil is characterized by regional differences in soil, climate, and altitude which give the coffees their different hints of aromas and flavors. These differences are also notable in production systems with highly mechanized systems in some regions to others where coffee growing is predominantly family-oriented. Come and taste it all!

Coffee of the Year 2017 Award

Coffee samples are sent by national producers throughout Brazil and then tasted by national and international classifiers. There will be over a 200 samples, different flavors and direct trade with farmers. Afterwards, the best 10 samples are tasted and voted by the attendees and compete for the Coffee of the Year award.

Taste flavors across all the regions of Brazil at the Cupping Rooms

Brazilian coffee samples of the 17/18 crop are sent from producers from all over Brazil and proven by classifiers and national and international buyers. Also, trade and exportation companies have the opportunity to present their beans to the attendees.
