Appreciation for the head judge Ms. Sunalini Menon:

Leading a 15–member jury for the fair and impartial judgment of the competition, her fantastic speech of “Global Trends In Coffee Quality” for the coffee forum, and her encouraging comment on the coffee quality of both Yunnan and Taiwan. 



The Yunnan coffee production has exceeded 130,000 tons, and the scale, output, varieties and sales model are quite different from Taiwan. The CH Biotech Coffee Research Center has contributed to the effect of knowing our own strength and friend’s through the Cross-Strait cup in-deep interaction. Although the Taiwanese geisha planted by TsouTribe Farm, Song Yue Farm and Zhuo Wu Mountain Farm won the top 5 prizes in the Cross-Strait cup, the catimor of Yunnan Zebra Estate got a high score of over 85 points and won the "Head Judge Special Award ". The flavor potential of Yunnan coffee has greatly surprised Taiwanese coffee lovers.
