This year the African Fine Coffee Association (AFCA) will auction coffee from the annual Taste of Harvest coffee competition using Bean Auction’s online auction system. The goal is to achieve higher prices for producers and demonstrate the value of investing in improving coffee quality. AFCA is working closely with the Coffee Board of Kenya to provide; approved warehouses, premises to host the ToH competition and distribution of funds to sellers.
Kenya’s best coffees from the 2016/17 season will be submitted to the ToH Competition to be cupped and judged using the Specialty Coffee Association of American (SCAA) protocol. A panel of local and international judges will rank the lots in order of preference and enter them into an online auction.
