The competition Best of Tarqui brings coffee roasters and producers together, and we’ve been a part of it four times now. Morgon got to cup and score coffee from over 60 producers from the area and this is how they got introduced to Ferney in 2018. His coffee was their absolute favourite, and he placed third in the competition. His placement meant that he got payed a premium and that they bought this lot for over twice the market price. This year Ferney chose not to compete but to sell his coffee directly to Morgon as they were more than happy to not only match, but raise the premium we paid for his beautiful coffee to ensure our continued relationship with Ferney.
