The 2012 Coffees of the Year

If you're a coffee lover, chances are you've asked yourself, "what's the best coffee in the world?"  You've probably also wondered, "how do I get my hands on some?"  Luckily, we can answer both questions for you! The Roasters' Guild, along with the Specialty Coffee Association of America, tried 250 coffee samples from over two dozen countries to determine the 10 best coffees in the world for 2012. Here are the results:
  1. 88.41 – Oromia Cooperative, Oromia Region, Ethiopia
  2. 88.25 – Cerro Azul, Trujillo, Colombia
  3. 87.74 – Las Margaritas, Calcedonia, Colombia
  4. 87.28 – Gedeo Zone, YCFCU, South Region, Ethiopia
  5. 87.00 – Cielito Lindo, Santa Barbara, Honduras
  6. 86.94 – Will and Grace; Rising Sun Farms, Ka’u, Hawaii U.S.A.
  7. 86.75 – Granja La Esperanza, Valle Del Cauca, Colombia
  8. 86.59 – Finca Buenavista, San Agustin, Huila, Colombia
  9. 86.47 – Rusty’s Hawaiian, Ka’u, Hawaii U.S.A.
  10. 86.41 – Ali’i Hawaiian Hula Hands Coffee, Ka’u, Hawaii U.S.A.
Looks like Ethiopia, Colombia, and Hawaii ran away with the awards!  Ethiopian coffee has always been ranked highly; after all, this was the birthplace of coffee!  Colombian coffee has also become the signature image for coffee worldwide; when you think coffee, you think Colombia!  Hawaiian coffee is consistently ranked as one of the top coffees in the world, so it's no surprise that it shows up on this list. CoffeeAM has coffee from all three places (plus Honduras...we didn't forget about you, buddy!).  No matter which one you want to try (and why not try all of them!), we have it all in one place.  It's easy to order and ships fast, ensuring that you receive the best, freshest gourmet coffee available.  Try any of the 2012 Coffees of the Year today!
