Cupping for the best Antigua coffee region competition 2009.-

Posted on May 1, 2009 at 7:30pm 1 Comment

On 21 March 2009 , I participated in the coffee tasting session during which we chose the best cup from the finca to represent this year’s harvest. The finca Filadelfia won the Coffee Producers Association Genuine Antigua (APCA) competition as the Best Antigua Region Cup of 2009. It took us almost 6 hours to find the best blend and taste from among all the coffees of the plantation, tasting over 30 cups! I remember that day I didn’t have LUNCH until 5pm ; we were tired but happy.

Hey guys, I guess you haven't heard from me before or know a lot about me, I'm not a barista but a coffee grower and promotor from Guatemala. I had been in this business since I was 18 or so. My family has been in the coffee business for more than 2 generations and I guess the passion goes generation after generation.

Hi Pablo,
I am responding to your reply regarding hi-resolution images of coffee growing. We would use any image on our coffee house wall in a framed picture. Specifically, I am looking for images of workers on the plantation, including harvesting. Please let me know if that would be possible.
I notice that you are near Antigua. I was in your beautiful city in 1978 while traveling around the region - loved it.
Best regards,

OK then...... I'll wait for your call. As for the spam-advertisement, or propaganda as it's called in Brasil, it's just that........ junk mail. Matt may be able to delete it from all of the comment sections, I don't know.

Pablo..... I'll look forward to hearing from you, hopefully before we leave for Vegas, but certainly when we're there. You have my number. My schedule may require me to run to San Diego tomorrow, Tuesday. Just call me. I'm presenting a training seminar to clients in Las Vegas on Friday around noon, and will try to get to the show later in the afternoon. But I'll spend most of Saturday at the exposition.

When exactly will you be coming into LAX? I leave for San Diego this week to do a trade show. Next week I leave on a business trip to the US East coast. I will be at my home office the weekend before Coffee Fest, and we leave for Las Vegas Wednesday morning. So if you're coming into LA the weekend before Coffee Fest, you may be able to stop on your way to San Diego?

Pablo..... I'll be at Coffee Fest, probably later on Friday and early Saturday through mid day? If you want to say "Hola..... or Bom Dia" call me; 949-305-0488.

That sounds great Pablo..
My email address is

I'm looking forward to it! Could you give me an indication on how much we should budget on spending per person while we are there. (accomodation, food etc) We want to have the most authentic experience possible. We would also really like to do some work on the farm! Is that possible?
