ProColombia and Algrano invite you for a cupping!

Meet & Sip: A virtual cupping with Colombian exporters

Want to meet new Colombian producers and taste exclusive coffees? Then join us for a special two-day event this June! Algrano is hosting two virtual cuppings, the first focused on sustainable and certified coffees and the second on specialty micro-lots from Colombia. Producers will strive to make a good impression and will bring their best lots to the table, so don’t miss out! 

Cup alongside producers, exporters and other roasters all over Europe and share your thoughts on the coffees directly with the source. Meet growers who share your values and find new partners in Colombia that can offer the coffees you need, be it certified lots for conscious customers or something unique to help your brand stand out.    

We will present a different set of samples sent to you by selected Colombian exporters on each session. The event will be kick-started with introductions, so you can learn more about each producer and their work. Our Quality Control manager Veronika Keckesova will lead a blind cupping where she will discuss the attributes of each coffee. Next, the samples will be revealed and you will receive private links with the offers and a direct communication channel to the producers.


How it works

These coffees are being offered exclusively as part of the event, so if you are looking for a close partnership with the origin and something unique to roast this is definitely for you! There are only 25 spots available for each cupping, so register now to secure your place. Registrations will be closed on the 15th of June and samples will be sent shortly after. 

Each roaster can register for one session only. Participants will receive a set with 7 samples, each containing 100 g of green coffee. Samples must be roasted one day before the cupping in line with SCA cupping protocols.

This event is being organized in partnership with ProColombia, the national agency to promote Colombian exports, and the Colombian Embassy in Switzerland. All exporting companies are being vetted by ProColombia and Algrano as part of the selection process.
