Since 1999, Cup of Excellence has returned over US$50 million to the producing countries that take part in this quality discovery mechanism.

Auction Results

Global buyers of these award-winning coffees have rewarded hard-working farmers with unprecedented premiums that are well above the prices typically offered.

These premiums are paid on the online auction and this platform has fundamentally changed the livelihoods of farmers and helped spur a revolution in how high quality coffee is valued.

Once the auction is over and the proceeds are given to the farmer, everything can change - farmers begin experimenting with different varietals and processing, new land and equipment is purchased, an increase in paid workers, children sent to school, houses built or remodeled, churches constructed and long-awaited honeymoons are taken. These postive life changes happen all because a producing country team made the tough decision to reward quality.
