I am from Padua New Guinea and a farmer myself.
I wonder why no coffee producer country is involved in this event. Quality assurance in producing countries will improve quality from source or origin of coffee add monitory value to the crop and reward farmers and enable farmers to reinvest in increasing quality coffee production.

Prazado Anis, ha sim muitos produtores de cafe, inclusive pequenos como os que foram aqui do sul de Minas , do Brasil.
