Specialty Coffee Expo 2017

The 2017 Specialty Coffee Expo was once again held in Seattle this year. It was another fabulous experience, and a chance to see many of our coffee friends and acquaintances.

We were happy to see that Peru was well represented again this year. It seems like every year they just take it to another level. We participated in a cupping of several award winners, as well as some wonderful naturals and honeys. It’s exciting to see the quality of Peruvian coffee return to the excellence that we saw before coffee rust wiped out so many farms in 2012. Go Peru!
