In 2015, we began the practice of recognizing top coffees by category to focus attention on fine coffees that may not have earned a place on our Top 30 Coffees list. The coffees below may not have attracted the highest scores of the year but they merit recognition for their excellence nonetheless. For more information, visit our expanded rankings post from 2015.
We are pleased to recognize the following outstanding coffees that are among the most exciting in their categories:
Central America – Non-Geisha
Alternative Africas (i.e. Not Ethiopia and Kenya)
Certified Fair-Trade or Organic
Best Values – Espressos
Best Values – Non-Espressos
