Also unique at this event was the fat that in front of the cups we viewed the
roasted sample, the green sample and a parchment sample. Locals debate the fact
that farmers "primp" coffee just for the competition, since they submit
just 60 Lbs. Other events have larger lots, like 20-30 bags, and the sample is
drawn from that lot. The lot is then auctioned later, and it will match the coffee
from the competition. But there is no auction paired with the Kona competition.
