Hey Everyone! As many of you know, AGRO will soon be competing against hundreds of roasters in hopes of taking home the Roasters Choice award. This is prestigious title is awarded to one roaster, each year by the Roasters Guild at the Specialty Coffee Association of America annual exposition. This year the event takes place in Seattle. Members of the Roasters Guild must submit 25 lbs of roasted coffee that they have feel best represents and highlights their roasting skills. Selected on Thursday April 24th in advance of the Exposition, the top 6 coffees will be showcased throughout the SCAA Event weekend. Since the submission deadline has now passed we can finally tell you what we will be submitting! After much deliberation, we have picked the Guatemala Villaure Pacamara.
This award winning farm won the Guatemala Cup of Excellence in 2003 and produces some of the highest scoring coffee in Guatemala. We sourced the coffee through Onyx coffee in Bellingham. They work directly with the farmers there, visiting twice a month during harvest season sourcing the best coffees available. Both the importer (Onyx) and farmer (Aurelio Villatoro) will be in attendance throughout the expo weekend and we hope to share the win with them. Fingers crossed!
This coffee will also be available for purchace (while supplies last!) in the online shop. Don't forget to use the discount code SHIP4FREE to get free shipping untill May 16th.
