Topic: Brazilian Specilty Coffee Association - cup of (3 msgs / 98 lines)
1) From: Pieter Sijbrandij
The Brazilan Specialty Coffee Association (BSCA) announced the winners of
the national Cup of Excellence.
 =
Of the 23 winners, 19 are from the Sul de Minas region (Southern Minas
Gerais State). =
Of these 19, twelve! are from the municipality of Carmo de Minas.
 =
Three are from São Paulo, but in fact very close to the same Sul de Minas
region (10 miles).
 =
The only outlier is from the state of Bahia, region Chapada Diamantina,
municipality of Piatã.
 =
If I were Sweet Maria’s, I would try to get some coffee of this region. It
is far too easy to stick to the Daterra & Sul de Minas coffees. The coffees
from the Chapada Diamantina region are great and deserve more attention.  (I
could find only a cupping reference from 2002). =

Any ideas why pretty much all the coffees were from the same area?
Were there many that didn't make the cut from other areas?

I'm sure that there is a reason why Tom offers what he does from Brazil.
If these other beans were great, and priced right, Tom would offer them up.
Just my humble opinion here.
Cheers,
John in Nor Cal
