Award Winning Cup of Excellence Lucas Melo - 8oz

Lucas represents the 3rd generation of coffee producers in his family. He has competed in the Cup of Excellence three times, earning 2nd place on his first year on entry. Last year, his coffee was also part of the Presidentials, meaning his farm is an example of consistency and hard work to produce the best coffees. He feels encouraged to compete in the Cup of Excellence because he knows that growing coffee requires care and to him that is important and he feels that it encourages other farmers to participate as well. To him, Cup of Excellence means work, education, employment and an opportunity to provide a better payment to coffee pickers and to provide a better education for his children. The Cup of Excellence program was born in 1999 at the end of a global project designed to help farmers receive more money for their high-quality coffee. We are proud to offer such incredible coffees grown with a clear dedication to excellence and high quality.
