Who will be Victorious?
CoffeeWars VII consisted of 26 entries. This was an all-
time record. Nearly 5 gallons of coffee were consumed,
which also is a record. Hoo-boy. We announced three
winners at the closing ceremony:
1. Overall winner (our grand prize): Steve Tornio, with
ALTERRA DELTA MUD, at $9.45/lb came in with an overall
approval score of 7.29.
2. Bang-for-the-buck: Qubit, with Brian's Panamanian
Peaberry Perfection at $4.80/lb got a bang-for-the-
buck ration of 1.1 (this is the ratio of overall
approval to price).
3. Holy Crap: Dark Tangent, with the "Poo Maximus"
entry at $180/lb set a staggering record for price
per pound. As a coffee, it was good, but not
remarkable. In terms of price, though, we don't
think we'll ever see anything in that price range
again, and we salute the utter insanity of it all!
More detailed statistics, as well as complete ranking
of each entry, will appear on coffeewars.org as soon as
the write-up is complete.
For those of you who just can't wait, here's a slightly massaged
version of the spreadsheet (the writeup
is coming, really. I promise).
Once again, we must thank Foofus for another great writeup for CoffeeWars.
