El Salvador 2010 Cup of Excellence – Winning Farms

This week marked the 2nd week in a row an international jury descended on a Central American host for a Cup of Excellence competition.  The jury awarded the Cup of Excellence to thirty lots, including three lots achieving a CoE Presidential award for scoring higher than 90 points on the final day.  From the CoE press release on the event, the international jury was somewhat divided in its preferences for El Salvador’s choice bourbons and pacamaras.  Here’s hoping we are able to get our hands on some gems like we did with the Altamira Pacamara from last year.

  1. Gilberto Baraona Says:

    I think there is a mistake in your chart el salvador coe, Los Pirineos is numebr 7 not 8 place.

  2. Thank you–post is corrected. The initial announcement had the order reversed, likely because the average cupping score was the same.

  3. How can I buy Finca Suiza wholesale? I would like to try it. I have purchased Finca Las Nubes before and it was very good.

    Thank you,

  4. Hi Chad! thanks again for the posts… just wanted to let you know that my mom, Gloria Rodríguez Fontan (Finca San José & El Porvenir) is also co-owner of this year’s #16 La Gloria/Nueva Granada…. We entered a lot from both farms… Nueva Granada (45% of the lot) is my mom’s… 🙂
