I doubt that I could summarize it better than Oliver Strand, so I’ll just let him do it for you.
$500.50 a Pound for Coffee Beans - NYT (clicky)

Summary: El Injerto wins Guatemala CoE, fetching an astronomical price.


Raul Rodas took the World Barista Competition trophy home to a major producing country for the first time.


Matt Perger takes home the still under-rated World Brewers Cup to Australia.

I’d like to note, Andy Sprenger of Cermony Coffee in Annapolis, MD won a respectable 2nd place.  (go USA)

Brasil Cup of Excellence 2007: Postponed

November 7, 2007 · Filed Under Auctions, Coffee, Cup of Excellence · 4 Comments 

 The 2007 Brasil Cup of Excellence has been canceled.  As you can see below, CoE uses the term, “postponed”.

I’ve heard of and experienced a bit of saltiness in Brasil based espressos lately.  I wonder if there’s a connection.
