Yave Melanio Fernandez Monsalve
I was born and grew up in this place, until now I have always dedicated myself to the field producing coffee on the farm Las Cortaderas, which I inherited from my parents. My father started working on the farm in 2002 with the production of coffee, and in 2010 he gave it to me in inheritance. I continued to work it until now, making sure I had good varieties, adequate shade, and fertilizing correctly to prevent coffee diseases. I am very enthusiastic about participating in the Cup of Excellence so that my coffee will be recognized for its quality.
The Cup of Excellence competition
Cup of Excellence is the most prestigious competition and award for high quality coffees. The level of scrutiny that Cup of Excellence coffees undergo is unmatched anywhere in the specialty coffee industry. Each year, thousands of coffees are submitted for consideration, with winning coffees sold in global online auctions at premium prices, with the vast majority of auction proceeds going to the farmers.
The competition is rigorous, with cupping evaluations conducted over a three-week process by industry experts: first by a National Jury of about a dozen qualified jurors from the origin country, and then by an International Jury, comprised of approximately 20-25 experienced jurors from around the world.
