The Cup of Excellence is a strict competition that selects the very best coffee produced in that country for that particular year . These winning coffees are chosen by a select group of national and international cuppers and are cupped at least five different times during the competition process.

The Cup of Excellence® competition cycle was conceived with the purpose of finding masterpiece lots of coffee from hundreds of entries. This requires a dedication to key details and an unrelenting repetition in the cupping search process that has become the unique signature of the Cup of Excellence experience.

Gallery Series, refers to those one-of-a-kind coffees with extremely special or exciting flavor qualities, that when we cup them, we recognize as extraordinary. Like other organic food products, the flavor qualities of Gallery Series coffee reflect not just a particular geography, altitude, farm or varietal–they also reflect less fixed factors like weather and terroir–which is never exactly the same anywhere in the world from year to year. Because of this, Gallery Series coffees are limited edition coffees, so make sure to enjoy them when they are available.

Round #01
Bolivia is new territory for me when it comes to coffee, so this is going to be interesting.
Spicy, at least that's what I can smell from the pod. As usual I go for 8 oz the first time.
Not spicy when I tasted it. Sweet, smooth, and a bit weak. I'll go for 7 oz next round.
This is my second COE from Fratello, and compared to the Nicaraguan I've tried it's no
match at all. Still it's way better then an average cup of coffee. It cools down and I can
taste something like brown sugar in there. Not bad.

Round #02
Brown sugar more distinct now at 7 oz.
Maybe a bit fruity acidity. Pleasant indeed.

Round #03
Very good, this round too.
Maybe i hint of earth deep, deep in the flavors.
Cooled down the brown sugar became more chocholate
Nice acidity.

Score: 4
