Although traded in a commercial setting, SKN Caribecafe specially prepared the coffees for Bero Coffee Singapore to keep in mind the industry-accepted SCA standards for green coffee. In short, if we plug and play the commercial quality of the Supremo, it can pass on all 3 stages (Green defect, Roasted Quakers, Cupping Score) as Specialty Grade.
“Excelso Coffee of Colombia” can be a confusing grade or declaration for the coffee. Excelso is “Excellent” in the Spanish language, therefore it translates the “Excellent Coffee of Colombia” – The highest Grade in the commercial world. Another term that is usually confused with is the screen size of the coffee, Supremo being screens 17 and above and Excelso being screen 16 and above.
The screen size of the coffee does not translate into the quality of growth of the coffee cherry, nor the cup profile in any way.
