The Cup of Excellence family was devastated at the news that 8 of the coffee lots destined for the 2017 Mexico COE and ACE National Winners auctions were stolen in a late-night robbery. While insurance may offset a tiny portion of the value of the coffees, these farmers are left with no reward for their hard work and no financial cushion. By donating to these farmers you will be helping to offset some of their loss and will send a strong message that you care. These 8 farmers are listed below along with their scores and the size of their lot. These winners will remain listed on the site even though their coffees no longer exist to be auctioned.

Any amount you feel you can donate will be appreciated. The donated monies will be distributed in August. These monies will be based on the 2017 Mexico auction results in a percentage that matches the international jury score and the lot size.
On behalf of these Mexico farmers, we thank you for your generosity.
