Award winning producers
Serve Coffee carefully sources coffee from our community of ministry minded, award winning producers.
Some of the farmers that are both active in giving back to their communities and have also been selected to participate in their country's Cup of Excellence competitions include:
- Stanley Yoder of El Buen Pastor in Siguatepeque Honduras - First place in 2007 with a cupping score of 92.25. His coffee is processed by COE competitor Benjamin Paz of Beneficio San Vincente.
- Luis Alberto Balladerez M., our friend from Beneficio Las Segovias in the Ocotal area of Nicaragua, placed 3rd and 13th in 2017 and captured both 1st and fifth places in 2018, and 1st place again in 2020. Here, Luis gives God credit for his success and describes how the winnings will benefit his community.
- The Villatoros of the Huehuetenange Guatemala area have been selected among the country's top producers since 2002 and almost every year since 2009. In 2019, the family placed 9th and 20th. In 2020, they placed 3rd and 25th.
- The Ben Carlson family and the Long Miles project placed several times, including third in Burundi in 2015. They recently have expanded into Kenya.
We are pleased to be able to source these award winning coffees for you.
