While the brand new Juta Bio UTZ blend, proposed to baristas and consumers less than a year ago and its debut in the world of excellence, has immediately emerged as one of the best Organic and sustainable blends in the world.
It’s since 2008 that the Ligurian roasting company has been recognized at the International Coffee Tasting with at least one gold medal as a declaration of excellence for its blends.
To “Receiving again the Gold Medal for the Anniversary Blend, after those of 2012 and 2016, is a confirmation of our good work” said Alessandro Borea CEO of La Genovese “It means that we are able to maintain high the quality over time and that the product is always constant. With coffee it’s not easy at all, it’s still a natural product subject to natural variations according to the harvesting seasons.
However, this year we are particularly proud of the recognition given to our new Caffè Juta BIO, an high-quality blend 100% Arabica certified organic and UTZ.
We have succeeded in creating a product that is the result of responsible and sustainable agriculture, respecting people and planet, with a guaranteed supply chain that respects farmers, workers and their families, helping them to fulfill their ambitions and to contribute to safeguarding the resources of the world.
The Juta Bio UTZ blend is a sweet and elegant coffee, with a velvety cream and persistent aromas, with hints of flowers and fresh fruit that leave room for vanilla and jasmine, and with a marked acidity. It was not easy! Juta is the result of over a year of work, made of research, selection, tests. To be honest, I did not expect to see our roasting work recognized by the International Coffee Tasting jury right away. This is why we are particularly proud of the Gold Medal for the Juta Bio UTZ blend: it means that we have worked well and this is very important for us. ”
