Since 2013, Coffee Review editors have published an annual list of the year’s Top 30 Coffees, ranking the most exciting coffees from the thousands we cupped over the course of the year. Each year, we rank the 30 most exciting coffees and espressos based on quality (represented by overall Coffee Review rating); value (affordability relative to other similar quality coffees); and other factors that include distinctiveness of style, uniqueness of origin, tree variety, processing method, certification, and general rarity.
This year, our countdown of the Top 30 Coffees of 2022 began on Friday, November 18, when we revealed coffees No. 30 through No. 11. On Saturday, we will announce coffees No. 9 and No. 10. On Sunday, it will be No. 7 and No. 8; followed by No. 5 and No. 6 on Monday; and No. 3 and No. 4 on Tuesday. We will complete the countdown on Wednesday, November 23, when we will announce our No. 1 and No. 2 coffees of 2022.
You can now see the Top 30 countdown for 2022:
