What is the Cup of Excellence and why do we support it?

What is the Cup of Excellence (CoE) is a common question that we get asked all the time from our customers. People want to know, why we care about the CoE. Why do we support it? Well it is very easy. It matches perfectly to our philosophy, to our values and to our vision and mission.

So what is the Cup of Excellence?

The Cup of Excellence is a yearly competition that is held in various countries around the world to find and award the best coffees produced in those countries. It is organized by a non profit organization called the Alliance for Coffee Excellence and started in 1999 with the first competition in Brazil.


Roast Logging with Artisan Visual Scope for better Quality Control

UPDATE: We have since this post originally appeared, changed out roast logging system from Roast Logging with Artisan Visual Scope to Cropster and no longer use Artisan Visual Scope. We keep this post in our blog as it is serving for several people as a good entry point how to implement a free roast logging solution.

We here at Tico Coffee Roasters have long been focusing on providing only the best coffees and most exclusive teas for a truly unique experience. All our coffees have been handcrafted since day one and we have kept a full roast log of every single roast to ensure consistency and the best possible quality of our coffee beans.

We are taking this now to a new level by adding a fully automated logging system to our roastery. We have been researching for quite a while to find the perfect system for our needs and have finally installed our brand new roast logging system based on the Artisan Visual Scope Software  created by Marko Luther in Munich, Germany. And it is truly just coincidence that our roast master is also from Munich, Germany.
