2007 Guatemala Cup of Excellence

Postby Klaus on Sat Jun 16, 2007 9:24 am

For those who didn't see it yet, the Cup of Excellence auction of Guatemala is over.
Big congratulations to everybody involved.
Especially to Edwin! (one of our own here on Coffeed) Not only did Finca Vista Hermosa (http://fincavistahermosa.com/) get 8th place, it also got the 5th highest price.
Stumptown fetched the El Injerto at $15.15/lbs but Solberg & Hansen took the first place at $19.50!

No surprise on Stumptown going for the El Injerto - they have a long standing relationship with that excellent farm.

Great auction again, and it goes without saying seeing the spread in prices and some great coffees going for some really good (all around) prices is just awesome.

As a sidenote - I only read it briefly this week - Guat was hit by another big earthquake. Anyone know if it is going to affect this coming year's crops?

[Houston Chronicle 14 June 07]...

GUATEMALA CITY " A powerful earthquake that shook Guatemala and parts of El Salvador caused widespread panic but left both countries virtually unscathed, officials said Thursday.

Landslides were reported outside the Guatemalan capital in the southwest province of Escuintla from Wednesday's quake, but they apparently caused no casualties, said Benedicto Giron, spokesman for the National Disaster Reduction Center....
