Oscar Edgardo Tinoco, Pino de Oro
1st Cup of Excellence Honduras 2023
Filter | Aeropress | Frenchpress
Oscar Edgardo Tinoco's farm "Pino de Oro" stands not only for quality but also for passion in coffee cultivation. Both are necessary to achieve such success as winning first place in the Cup of Excellence. At an altitude of 1640m, Oscar's coffee plants thrive in the buffer zone of the Santa Bárbara Mountain Nature Reserve - idyllically located - and are now taken care of by the second generation of the Tinoco family: Oscar inherited his love for coffee cultivation from his father.
In addition to his success in coffee quality, Oscar is committed to sharing his success with his community. For this reason, he started donating 10% of his profits to social projects in 2010 when he won third place in the Cup of Excellence. In 2011, he finally achieved first place in the Cup of Excellence in Honduras, a feat he has managed to repeat this year.
"Pino de Oro" stands for excellent coffee and deep social and ecological commitment.
What is the Cup of Excellence?
Cup Of Excellence is one of the coffee industry's most prestigious competitions, which continues to increase the recognition of the work of coffee farmers.
The competition allows unbiased and stringent analysis of coffee quality and allows farmers of all sizes to participate. It gives them the tools to improve their coffees further.
Coffees go through several rounds of tough evaluation by national and then international judges. Often, only a few dozen of the sometimes thousands of submitted coffees make it through the first, national round.
The farms of the winning coffees will most often gain longterm recognition and get to auction their coffees in a global online-auction for premium prizes.
We are proud to be able to support the project as a Global Coffee Centre and Member of the Alliance for Coffee Excellence.
