A photographic blog of our head roaster Paul’s Cup of Excellence and sourcing trip to Guatemala 2015
‘’In May I had the privilege of travelling to Guatemala to judge the 2015 Cup of Excellence (COE) during the international jury phase. The COE programme is respected throughout the specialty coffee world for its focus on quality, and a programme Ozone Coffee Roasters is proud to be involved with.
I also spent the last two days in Guatemala travelling in the Antigua and Fraijanes growing regions to visit producers we source coffees from. Authentic relationships are an integral part of our DNA, so to meet the producers directly and walk through their farms with them was a valuable opportunity. The farms in Guatemala have a special atmosphere – a rich coffee growing history with some farms having been in the same family for many generations.
It was a privilege to visit these stunning farms and I was always greeted with warm local generosity; fresh brewed coffee from the farm, homemade corn tortillas, the best black beans I’ve ever tasted and a cold local beer to wash it down.’’
