ICT 2022, the competition for great coffee

International Coffee Tasting 2022 is coming soon: the fourteenth edition of the competition organized by the International Institute of Coffee Tasters (Iiac) is returning, rewarding the world’s best coffees.

The competition will be held in different sessions from the 1st of May 2022 to the 31 of December 2022. Over the past years, this event has seen almost 2,500 different products going head-to-head. In 2021 alone, 327 coffees from 10 countries participated in the competition.

Organized with the support of the CSA Italian Tasters and of consulting company Good Senses, the high quality of this competition is based on the technical evaluations provided by the judges from the International Institute of Coffee Tasters (Iiac): a network that now counts almost 12,000 professionals in more than 40 countries around the world.

The judges work completely blindfolded in accordance with the most stringent sensory analysis standards. All the data that they provide is statistically validated. Only products that pass the requirements established by the rules may receive a medal.
