For the first time, a female farmer wins Brazil Cup of Excellence | Coffee News | Scoop.it

For the first time in its history, a female farmer has won the Brazil Cup of Excellence® Late Harvest competition. Cinthia Dias Villela from Nossa Senhora Aparecida of the Carmo de Minas region produced the highest scoring of 23 Cup of Excellence® award-winning coffees evaluated by an international panel of judges representing 10 countries.


The #1 lot score of 92.22 points set a new record for the Late Harvest competition.


Two other coffees in the competition also qualified for the Cup of Excellence® Presidential Award by achieving a score of 90 points or above: Lot #2, Fazenda Paraíso of Conceição das Pedras with 90.25 points and Lot #3, Sítio da Serra of Carmo de Minas at 90.19 points.


The Late Harvest competition, one of two Cup of Excellence® events held in Brazil each year, features Brazil’s exceptional dry natural processed coffees. An Early Harvest competition highlights top pulped natural and washed coffees. Both events are made possible with the support of ApexBrasil, the Brazilian trade and investment promotion agency.

The winning lots will be auctioned on March 4, 2014 on the Alliance for Coffee Excellence website. Auction preview cupping will be held in select locations worldwide beginning in late February.

Supreme Beans: 6 Home Coffee Roasting Methods Tested ...

Supreme Beans: 6 Home Coffee Roasting Methods Tested ... | Coffee News | Scoop.it

There was a time in America when if you wanted coffee, you had to roast it yourself.

The now-ubiquitous brown coffee bean used to ship to general stores green, with housewives usually roasting at home with a frying pan or — if she was lucky — a crank-turned home roasting system. With the advent of high-volume roasting companies in the mid-1800s and ever-improving freshness-sealed packaging, consumers no longer have to worry about roasting (or grinding for that matter) their coffee before brewing it.

Recently, the micro-roasting movement has brought roasting back into the home. For many coffee-lovers, home roasting is a way to ensure the freshest coffee in a rural areas, in the vast suburban Starbucks Sahara, or even just as a cheaper alternative to pricey high-end coffee mail-order services.

We tested six different home roasting methods. First, I tried four commercial options: the Nesco Professional, aFresh Roast SR500, the Behmor 1600, and a Hottop. I also tried two DIY methods: a cast iron pan on a gas stovetop, and Whirley Pop popcorn maker I modified to work as a coffee roaster — a popular hack I found on the web. I did two or three test roasts on each machine with some green beans I grabbed from the show floor at this year's Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) expo. Then, for the final run, I roasted some high-quality beans given to us by the fine folks at Sweet Maria's, a Bay-area coffee supplier.
