The Alliance for Coffee Excellence (ACE) and Tanzania-based Ngorongoro Coffee Group have announced the green coffee winners in the second Ngorongoro Tanzania Private Collection Auction program.
The 20 winning lots, which range from 32 to 300 kilograms, are heading to an online auction scheduled for Tuesday, March 22. The list of winning coffees, which scored between 85.47-88.82 according to an international jury, reflects four different post harvest processing types (fully washed, carbonic maceration, honey process and natural process) and eight different arabica coffee varieties. Coffees all hailed from four farms within the Ngorongoro Coffee Group network.
In years past, the Ngorongoro Coffee Group has held an annual auction event called Cupping at the Crater. Last year, as the in person event was made impractical due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the group teamed up with ACE under the group’s “Private Collection Auctions” auction banner. Similar to ACE’s countrywide Cup of Excellence program, the Private Collection program involves private partners as coffee suppliers and facilitators.
