On Monday, November 25, Coffee Review will begin revealing its list of the Top 30 Coffees of 2019. We previously expected to start the countdown on Friday, November 22 but we are working to reduce the impact of an ongoing denial of service attack and want to make sure the Coffee Review website is stable, fully functioning, and capable of handling the surge in traffic that accompanies the Top 30 announcement.
As we have done for the past six years, our editors will rank the most exciting coffees from the thousands we cupped over the course of the past year. We will select and rank these 30 exciting coffees and espressos based on quality (represented by overall rating); value (reflected by most affordable price per pound); and other factors that include distinctiveness of style, uniqueness of origin, tree variety, processing method, certification, and general rarity.
As in past years, we will supplement our Top 30 by recognizing fine coffees from other parts of the world and/or produced from less celebrated botanical varieties that don’t necessarily earn the highest scores.
