Espresso Coffee
Besides the national awards, regional highlights were also recognized.
The 23rd Ernesto Illy Quality Award for Espresso Coffee already has a winner: Simone Dias
Sampaio Silva, from Araponga (MG). The coffee grower received a check for R$ 60,000 for her
sample being chosen amongst more than 500 analyzed by the Judging Committee. In total,
illycaffè distributed more than R$ 200,000 to the producers who occupied the best positions in
the national and regional editions.
Second place went to Cláudio Esteves Gutierrez, from Chapada de Minas, who received R$
35,000. Third place went to Clovis Carvalho, from Cerrado Mineiro, who received R$ 18,000.
Fourth and fifth places, two coffee growers from Matas de Minas: José Roberto da Silva
Gomes, who received R$ 9,000, and José Carlos Pereira, who received R$ 5,000. The producers
who occupied the 6th to 40th positions were awarded R$ 1,200.
In addition to the winners of the national edition, regional winners were awarded in the State
of São Paulo, the State of Rio de Janeiro, the Center West region, the North and Northeast
region, the South region, Matas de Minas, Chapada de Minas, Cerrado Mineiro and the South
of Minas (see the names in the table below).This segmentation helps illycaffè to discover grains
of excellence vouched for in new localities.
“The purpose of regional categories is to promote greater participation of producers in the
whole of Brazil, to the extent that, once again, we have received samples from all the
participating areas. We will continue encouraging the participation of these suppliers, always
assisting them in obtaining quality coffee”, declared Andrea Illy, CEO of illycaffè, during his
speech.
The choice of the best coffees was made by a judging committee, with national and
international specialists, through tests with ultraviolet light and through the classification of
the grain as to appearance, dryness, color, type, moisture content, roasting and as to the
quality of the drink, with espresso tasting.
Also during the award-winning ceremony, the classifiers with more samples selected among
the finalists were awarded. The winner, Edivaldo Batista Generoso, received R$ 3,500; the
first runner up, Wellington Carlos Pereira, R$ 2,500; the second runner up, Valdeci Miguel
Rodrigues, R$ 1,500; and the third runner up, Mauro Henrique Dias, R$ 1,000.
The public present at the event also met the Supplier of the Year, Eduardo Pinheiro Campos.
He was elected by the jury of the Clube illy do Café — a loyalty program of illycaffè which
gathers the best suppliers of the company. To decide the winner, they analyzed criteria such
as: loyalty and efficiency of the producer, punctuality of delivery, presentation of the product,
achievement of quantity and quality sold, correspondence of the batch with the original
sample and participation in the Sustainability Program and in the Award. The winner will win a
cultural trip to Italy, with the option to take a companion, to visit the headquarters of illycaffè,
in Trieste, among other attractions.
