About Farm:

Anibal is a third-generation coffee grower who followed his father’s path and experience in specialty coffee production. Today he owns 5 hectares where he grows Geisha and Tabi. The 2021 Cup of Excellence competition had 157 lots submitted and was judged in a blind cupping system by a group of National and International judges. This is the 1st time that Anibal has participated in a contest and receiving the 2nd place was a great surprise that gave him the validation to keep producing more amazing coffees.

From Anibal:

"My name is Anibal Sanchez Burbano, I am the owner of the La Siria farm in the municipality of Argentina Huila, in the village of Las Toldas in the Alto Tolda sector, where I have Gesha coffee planted.
The history of the farm comes from my grandfather's inheritance to my father and he, in turn, inherited it from my sister and me. It has always been a land cultivated with coffee and it will always will be, during the time that my parents had it, the Caturra variety was cultivated, then we planted geisha. We obtained the seed through a relative who was given it by an exporter that brought it directly from Panama and from there we have produced this line of geisha that we have here on the farm.
We are very happy to know that this coffee came out very well in the Cup of Excellence. For me, it is an honor to represent Huila and the municipality of Argentina, and all the coffee producers in the municipality. And this is an invitation to all producers to cultivate traditional coffees and start looking for other alternatives such as specialty and varietal coffees so that we have a better benefit in paying customers."

ABOUT CUP OF EXCELLENCE

"Cup of Excellence is the most prestigious competition and auction for high-quality coffees. The level of scrutiny that Cup of Excellence coffees undergoes 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 Cup of Excellence competition has pioneered integrity and transparency in the coffee industry, ensuring the value of winning coffees. Each sample entering the competition process is assigned a number known only to the auditor for each competition, and each jury member cups the coffee blind. In addition, each lot is documented through the entire process so that winning coffees are traceable to the farm and exact micro-lot. "Since 1999, the Cup of Excellence (COE) program has set the standard for the increased premiums that farmers have been able to receive for their exemplary coffees. It continues to build a much more transparent infrastructure and gives farmers the tools needed to improve the economic model of their farms. COE raises funds for coffees farmers in coffee-growing countries incentivizing and motivating farmers who know there can be a recognition and financial reward for their hard work and effort."
