TRIBO 6Q ROASTER ADVANCES TO WCRC -- AGAIN

Jason Hua wins the 2019 Taiwan Coffee Roasting Championship.

Taipei, August 25, 2019 - TRIBO Coffee proudly announces today that a key member of its SIX-Q roasting team, Jason Hua, recently won the 2019 Taiwan World Coffee Events (TWCE) roasting competition. He will now represent Taiwan on his home turf as the world championship will be held this November 15-18 in Taipei, Taiwan. 


“He did it again,” exclaimed TRIBO Marketing Director, Ryan Daniels. “We are so proud of Jason and the entire TRIBO 6Q roasting team!  They are so good at what they do!”


Jason was joined again in the TWCE Finals by fellow TRIBO Coffee SIX-Q roaster, Vincent Yao. The two Q-graders rose out of a large field of competitors who descended on the competition from around Taiwan. In recent years, Taiwan has been a competitive powerhouse, consistently placing high or winning global roasting and/or barista competitions since 2013. Taiwan’s dramatic rise on the global specialty coffee scene in recent years makes Jason and Vincent’s success all that more impressive. 


"We know Jason is good," says fellow 6Q roaster, Vincent Yao, "but this is ridiculous!"

Arabica coffee.  Coffee farmers.  shade tree coffee.  high mountain coffee

All TRIBO Coffees Are 100% Arabica

A recent IDH report indicates that Vietnamese Robusta coffee is environmentally problematic.

April 7, 2019 -- A recent Netherlands-based IDH, The Sustainable Trade Initiative, report indicates that Vietnamese Robusta coffee growing practices are in fact environmentally problematic.  The study cites "deforestation," "loss of biodiversity" and "reliance on pesticides" as key problems associated with Vietnamese Robusta.


"Primarily producing Robusta," says Daily Coffee News editor, Nick Brown, "the country’s [Vietnam] coffee sector has been defined by a volume-based approach, often resulting in deforestation for full-sun monocrop farm systems, and the subsequent loss of biodiversity. It also creates a heavy reliance on pesticides, considered one of the largest sources of carbon emissions in coffee production."  See Vietnam Carbon Footprint to read entire article.

TRIBO EXPLORES AMAZING GEISHAS AT BEST OF PANAMA CUPPING

Honing our craft, auction planning and simply tasting great coffee

Taipei, July 15, 2018 --  TRIBO Coffee’s 6Q roasting team organized an amazing Best of Panama (BOP) cupping event today that featured 49 Geisha, Pacamara and Traditional coffees, 39 of which have scored over 90 points, including a Geisha which scored a record 94.66 points.  The event was arranged as a sneak peek prelude to the upcoming auction event on July 19/20 where buyers from around the world will be bidding on these delicious beans.  


"This event gives us a great opportunity to not only try these great coffees," says event co-organizer, TRIBO 6Q member and SCA instructor, Edgar Chen, "but we can also get valuable feedback from our colleagues that will help us as we consider which coffees we choose to bid on this week."


As auction coffees, these Geishas are available in limited supply, so it's very important to be ready and decisive come auction day.   ¨Best of Panama¨is a platform which serves Panamanian growers interested in the specialization of high quality coffees. Growers do so via innovation and blind cupping excercise to discover and validate Panamanian Optimum Coffee Quality. This activity is 100% designed and organized by the Specialty Coffee Association of Panama (SCAP) - a Panamanian non-profit Coffee Growers / Processors Association. 


"We're always exploring new coffees," says TRIBO Coffee Co-Founder, Joe Seydewitz.  "Events like this are great because we not only taste amazing specialty coffees, but we also hone our cupping craft and sensory skills, which ultimately benefits TRIBO and its customers."
