Tasting Notes: Blackberry, Lemon, Sugar Cookie
Winner #15 of the 2019 Acevedo Cup Competition!
Jhon Wilson is a third generation coffee producer who began selling specialty coffee in 2015. When the Acevedo Cup premiered in 2016, he hesitated to enter, as he didn't believe his fermentation and drying facilities were good enough to win. After seeking advice from another farmer, and encouragement from others in the community, he submitted a small lot to the competition, and won 10th place -- a huge accomplishment and honor. After winning, Jhon invested in his fermentation and drying facilities, as well as making upgrades to his home to improve his own quality of life. In 2018, Jhon entered the Acevedo Cup again, and won both 6th and 7th place with two different lots.
This year, Jhon Wilson won multiple slots again, including 2nd place. We're both honored and excited to serve this lot.
