Officials from the Ethiopian Coffee & Tea Authority advocated the introduction of a strict rule that only enables farmers to participate in cup of excellence events as preparations for the third cup of excellence as it approaches. Small-holder farmers are likely to benefit from the move, as it will increase their income from specialty coffee products. The authority is scheduled to manage the third round entirely in collaboration with coffee-related organizations.
In the last two rounds of the cup of excellence, 3,300 coffee samples were registered for the competition. Tamiru Tadesse Tesema, a coffee supplier from the Bensa zone in the Sidama region, won the newest cup of excellence with a score of 90.06 points out of a possible 100. He sold nearly 14,000 Birr per kilogram for 1,140 kg of coffee.
