What is happening @specialtycoffeeassociation @uscoffeechamps Ken is such a good professional, I have witness his effort and long road to be there! If someone outstands the results it is not fair to put away of competition, you should understand the fact that good brewing changes coffee flavours!!!

This weekend, Ken competed in US Brewer’s Cup with a solid routine, a beautiful coffee, and an exceptional new piece of brewing equipment! I’m proud of how he put it all together and had high hopes to see him in the top 6 again.
However, I’m extremely disappointed in USCC and I don’t feel like ever throwing any money or effort into these competitions again after what I saw happen to him. He was singled out in compulsory for unfair reasons that felt to me like some kind of complete sabotage. They said his coffee didn’t taste like the compulsory coffee, and even though they wouldn’t outrightly say they thought he cheated, they scored his coffee as such. They said his coffee couldn’t have had the qualities that the judges tasted. Initially, they gave no reason and made him redo his compulsory and even took his backpack and had someone watching him brew his coffee. Even after round two they said there was no way the provided coffee could taste like this. Essentially he made the coffee taste better than they thought it was capable of. Consequently they graded him on a reduced score that was not in calibration with the rest of the competitors. I’m so mad and hurt for my partner and I’m complete disbelief that something like this can happen without repercussions or amendment.
