What is a score?
Our product range is categorised by score: 80+, 85+, 88+ We have the "Specialty Coffee Association of America" to thank for the system of "scores", who defined a very strict ratings protocol to evaluate the quality of speciality coffee. This ratings system enables players within the sector, as well as coffee lovers, to share a common language. Within this tasting protocol, the main criteria for the evaluation of a coffee are noted: odour, aroma, after-taste, acidity, body, harmony, purity...
The final score classifies the coffee within a hierarchy unique to speciality coffee. The coffee must achieve a score of at least 80/100 to be considered a speciality coffee.
A detailed look at the scores attributed to speciality coffee:
Our blends, being mixtures of multiple coffees, are excluded from the rating system, although they are all comprised of speciality coffees.
*The SCAA classifies 90+ coffees as "Outstanding". We consider an 88+ coffee to reflect a quality that is already outstanding, already representing the excellence of the sector. In this regard, it is a Grand Cru.
A crystalline and fruity rocket to describe this masterpiece of three micro-producers from the Mayan village of Tenejapa. The fermentations were carried out at the "Beneficio Comunitario" of Sibactel, initiated by our friend Jesús Salazar.
The Vasquez Sanctiz family masters the entire coffee value chain: cultivation, process and cup. It is not by chance that they consistently deliver a production worthy of the highest international standards.They do us the honor and the friendship to sell us the whole of their modest and magnificent annual production. Not to be missed...
