The International Chocolate Awards is pleased to announce the Grand Jury Finalists of the 2021 Cacao Country Support Competition in Colombia, which was judged in November 2021.


The Grand Jury Finalists are the entries that made it through to the final Grand Jury round, having scored at least 80/100, which is the score from which products are considered to have fine flavor quality and be free of major defects. The scores are finalised by the Grand Jury, who may consider and review products where there is not a high level of agreement by the main judging panel.


While listing as a Grand Jury Finalist is an achievement in itself, not all Finalists will receive a prize. Prizes are awarded according to standard benchmark scores for each medal, which may be varied according to the category, local conditions and statistical analysis of the judging scores.


Scores are made public for the Finalists only, scores are not shown for entries that did not achieve a Finalist level to maintain entrant confidentiality.

The scores are calculated using the IICCT Flavor Profiling system and are weighted to match recognised coffee scores, where speciality coffee would begin with a minimum score of 80/100 and upwards.

The Finalists of the Colombian Competition are:
