Concurso de Papas, Lima Peru
Wait, I think I came here for the wrong "concurso." Wasn't this supposed to be coffee we were judging. I mean, I like potatoes, but I don't know much about them. Anyway, it appears they take "papas" more seriously than "café" in Peru, sometimes. Many of the coops fight here, and one company controls nearly 50% of the exports. It's one reason that cup of excellence has never been held in Peru, to date. Peru still ahs too much of a "bulk coffee" (or even "bulk organic") mindset. Maybe the Concurso de Papas Peruano is more progressive than the Concurso de Cafe?
