Savour the undefinably best coffee in the country!


Cup of Excellence Rwanda

£45.00 or £45.00 £40.50 / month

Many roasters proclaim that they source the world’s finest coffees, but do they really? At Difference Coffee, we take a completely different approach to sourcing: we search for prestigious coffee competitions at origin, we identify their winners, and we bid for them at Auctions. In fact, most of our coffees are available to less than a handful of roasters worldwide.

Cup of Excellence is the most prestigious competition and award for high quality coffees. The level of scrutiny that Cup of Excellence coffees undergo is unmatched anywhere in the speciality coffee industry. The competition is rigorous, with cupping evaluations conducted over a three-week process by industry experts: first by a National Jury of about a dozen qualified jurors from the origin country, and then by an International Jury, comprised of approximately 20-25 experienced jurors from around the world. A competition with 300 entries yields an average of 9,000 analysed cups, with each “Top 10” coffee being cupped at least 120 times.

Twumba Coffee is the 2018 Rwanda Champion, having scored highest from all winning farms. Only 1,200kg of this coffee exists.

Prices start at £40.50 per Box of 10 capsules
