Seattle, WA, United States. April 23, 2017. The Small Producers’ Symbol celebrated the SPP Coffee Awards 2017, in the framework of the Global Specialty Coffee Expo. The event was held at the prestigious family-owned brewery The Pike Brewing in the heart of Seattle.
About one hundred people attended, including producers, toasters and trading companies that are part of the SPP, as well as guests related to fair trade, organic production and the coffee industry.
During the event the SPP Coffee Awards 2017 were handed out to the small producers’ organizations that participated with their coffee in the public cuppings held on Friday and Saturday at the SPP booth at the expo.
18 Samples from the Latin American countries Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Mexico Nicaragua, and Peru; as well as Indonesian coffee (Asia) and one from the Democratic Republic of Congo in Africa. All from organizations certified with the Small Producers’ Symbol.
The samples were professionally roasted by the Canadian company Jus Us! Coffee Roasters Cooperative, who also lead the cuppings that were held at the SPP booth on April 21 and 22 in two daily sessions at 11 and 14 local hours.
At the cuppings, open to the general public, participated expert cuppers, both from roasters and producers’ organizations, as well as coffee-passionate visitors.
The SPP Coffee Awards recognize the quality of coffee from SPP-small producers’ organizations and show the capacity of these producers to compete internationally with supreme quality, sustainable, fair trade products, adding ethical value to the production-distribution chain.
