Enjoy the rare "£50 Cup" of Coffee


Cup of Excellence Ethiopia

Ethiopian coffee has always had a special allure among connoisseurs – after all, the Arabica coffee plant originated in Ethiopia. Our new Ethiopia Cup of Excellence champion coffee represents one of the most remarkable lots in the history of the prestigious contest. At auction, it set a world-record price for an Ethiopian coffee, and Difference Coffee was one of only eight roasters in the world to secure a share of the champion lot.

We have only one 30 kg box of Ethiopia Cup of Excellence champion beans available. We made 300 boxes of four capsules each, which retail for £50. The price reflects the rarity of this fine coffee. We are selling a maximum of two boxes per client, which will allow as many Difference Coffee patrons as possible to experience this amazing coffee.

Priced at £50 per Box of 4 Capsules

Cup of Excellence

This year, the Cup of Excellence celebrated a homecoming of sorts by holding its first ever cupping contest in Ethiopia, the original home of the coffee plant. For the event in Ethiopia, the Cup of Excellence received a record-setting number of entries. In the coffee world, this was ample proof that the Ethiopian coffee industry is thriving, with experts and novices alike growing in their appreciation of the country’s delicious coffee. The Ethiopia Cup of Excellence champion coffee, produced by farmer Niguse Gemeda Mude, is one of the best we've ever tasted. After securing an exclusive share of the winning lot, we gave some to our Michelin-star restaurant clients, Queens of Mayfair (a newly opened luxury coffee shop in London) and some other private clients. Queens of Mayfair made international headlines when its limited edition, £50 per cup Ethiopia Cup of Excellence experience immediately sold out. With the rest of these truly exceptional beans, we were able to make 300 boxes of four capsules each. We expect these boxes to sell out fast!
