Hits: 170

The Award ceremony of the best 10 batches of high-quality coffee from our department was held during The Coffee of Colombia Expo 2017; Simeon Téllez, a coffee grower from the town of Guaduas, Cundinamarca was awarded the first place with a score of 87 points among 143 batches enrolled in the contest.

At this event, we had the participation of the Secretary of Agriculture and Rural Development and the Coffee Growers Committee of Cundinamarca that along with COODECAFEC continue working for the benefit of coffee grower families.

"There are many young people jobless, I want to tell them that in the fields and in the coffee they have a bright future, don't think just in departing to big cities," said Mr. Simeon.

Additionally to the winner batch, the coffee produced from other municipalities as San Francisco, La Vega, Anolaima, Viotá, Arbeláez, and Supatá was outstanding. The first five positions were part of a national auction organized by the Management of the National Federation of Coffee Growers of Colombia.

It is important to mention that during these four days of Expo, coffee from Cundinamarca and the producer families caught the attention of all attendees that recognized the good labor performed so far, demonstrating that our coffee is high quality.

These were the first ten positions in the contest:
