The Kaapi Royale Coffee Challenge returns to this year’s Specialty Coffee Association of America exposition in California at the Anaheim Convention Center April 16th-18th. One Challenge Champion will be awarded a trip to join Kaapi Royale Coffee on their annual harvest origin tour.
All coffee professionals are invited to take the Challenge, a test of skill where participants must correctly identify the species of three Indian coffee samples by taste; bonus points will be awarded to those who can additionally identify the method of processing for those coffees or cultivars. Cuppings will be held in the SCAA exposition at the Kaapi Royale Coffee booth (#2413) during show hours. Advance registration is not required and there is no fee to participate. One winner selected from all top-scoring entries collected will be announced on Sunday, April 18th.
The Kaapi Royale Challenge Champion will receive an invitation to join Kaapi Royale Coffee in India for a 4-day guided farm tour during the 2011 coffee harvest season beginning this December. Roundtrip air transportation to Bangalore, local accommodations, meals and ground transportation within India will be provided; some restrictions and availability requirements may apply.
