ABOUT THE COMPETITION

We want to invite you to celebrate with us Taza Dorada 2021 in its Special Edition for 15 years of history!

This event was created 15 years ago in Ecuador for coffee producers to promote better agricultural practices of production harvest and post-harvest, that motivate producers to improve on the quality of coffee. Transforming coffee growing in Ecuador from commercial to specialty coffees.

This event allowed producers independence in the sale of their product at international market prices (stock market), reaching a sustainable pricing model. Today Ecuador is recognized as one of the best coffees in the world, thanks mainly to the incredible effort and work of coffee producers in these 15 years. Let's go for more!
