Many roasters proclaim that they source the world's finest coffees, but how can a coffee connoisseur be sure? At Difference Coffee, we aim to instil complete confidence in the impeccable quality of our coffees. This is why we have a unique approach to sourcing, focusing on the winners of the world's most prestigious coffee competitions. We bid on the top prize-winning lots at auction, thereby securing limited supplies of incredible coffee that are only available to a handful of roasters worldwide.
Our unrivalled approach to sourcing world-class coffees allows us to offer such remarkable products as Twumba Coffee, the Rwanda Champion for 2018 at the elite Cup of Excellence competition. This 100 percent Bourbon Arabica coffee won the highest scores at the national and international jury levels of the Cup of Excellence and commanded the highest price at auction. Only 1,200 k.g. of this coffee exists, and Difference Coffee is proud to offer it to our discerning customers.

The Cup of Excellence is one of the coffee world's most prestigious competitions. It is organised by the Alliance for Coffee Excellence and known for its rigorous levels of scrutiny. Cupping evaluations overseen by industry experts take place over three weeks. Entrants are evaluated first by a national jury, then an international jury made up of experts from all over the world. To reach the final levels of the Cup of Excellence, a coffee will have been cupped at least 120 times.
In 2018, Rwanda was the first African nation to host a Cup of Excellence competition. From an initial 344 entries, 150 went through the national jury levels, with only 40 continuing to the international jury levels. In the final evaluations, just 28 lots scored a landmark 86-plus points, with Twumba Coffee the ultimate top scorer with an incredible 90.53 points.
Twumba Estate, a first-time entrant to the Cup of Excellence, sits amidst the steep mountains and valleys of western Rwanda, on the borders of Nyungwe National Forest. The estate's 100 percent Bourbon Arabica coffee is processed with natural spring water from the forest and dried naturally in the sun. Notably, coffee farming in the region is primarily the domain of women. Twumba Coffee partners with the Women's Coffee Alliance to empower women in the local community, boosting their education, health and financial security through coffee production. It's another compelling reason - along with the coffee's remarkable quality - to enjoy our Cup of Excellence Rwanda coffee.
