MILAN, Italy – On Monday October 21st at 5 pm, at the Sanremo booth at HostMilano, the best coffees of the world competing in the 5th “ Locally Roasted Coffees ” international contest award ceremony will be awarded.
This 5th contest – organised by AVPA (Agency for the valorization of agricultural products) – confirms the expectations of its founders and participants.
On the producers’ side, passion is there: some have done an exceptional job on green coffee, on its harvest, on its treatment and its fermentation, now better controlled, on its drying and finally on its roasting.
On the consuming countries’ side, the enthusiasm of more and more young coffee lovers cannot be denied.
Major coffee producing countries were competing. As usual, Latin America was very present, with Peru, Colombia, Mexico, Brazil, Honduras, Guatemala and Ecuador. On the Asian side, Indonesia was very present compared with Laos, Nepal, Thailand or Viet Nam. Africa with Ethiopia, Cameroon, Gabon, Ivory Coast, Tanzania and Togo confirmed the quality of their best-known coffees whilst Puerto Rico or Hawaii sent very interesting samples.
More than 200 cup tastings, in infusion and/or espresso, to classify and judge: Hopefully AVPA counts with a passionate and dedicated jury.
AVPA invites visitors to the Award ceremony at Sanremo booth on Monday, October 21th at 5 p.m to meet awarded producers and taste some of their coffees.
