Beatriz Elena Vélez Restrepo
Beatriz has been a coffee producer for more than 50 years being a pioneer in coffee production in this region next to her husband.  Their hard work and tradition to keep not only the quality but special relationships with their neighbours and workers brought them the opportunity to create a social project called "Los Niños del Cafe" a day care where single mothers can take their children while working at the farm.

What is Cup of Excellence?
Cup of Excellence is the most prestigious competition and auction for high quality coffees. The level of scrutiny that Cup of Excellence coffees undergo is unmatched anywhere in the specialty coffee industry. Each year, thousands of coffees are submitted for consideration, with winning coffees sold in global online auctions at premium prices, with the vast majority of auction proceeds going to the farmers.

The Cup of Excellence competition has pioneered integrity and transparency in the coffee industry, ensuring the value of winning coffees. Each sample entering the competition process is assigned a number known only to the auditor for each competition, and each jury member cups the coffee blind. In addition, each lot is documented through the entire process so that winning coffees are traceable to the farm and exact micro-lot.
