SALTY SAILOR COFFEE COMPANY RECIPE CONTEST WINNER SELECTION:
Round 1: Initial Selection by Panel of Judges.
A panel of judges consisting of Sponsor personnel will select at least five (5) Recipes to be prepared by our corporate chef. A panel of judges selected by the Sponsor will then judge the prepared recipes according to the following criteria:
- Fifty percent (25%) - Originality of the recipe
• Twenty-five percent (25%) – Creative use of coffee as a component
• Twenty-five percent (50%) – Taste
Each judge will award 1-5 points in each category. The individual category scores multiplied by the category multiplier (125, 1.25, or 1.5) and then totaled. All the judges scores will be added together to get the recipe composite score. They will be ranked and the five winners selected based on those scores. In the event of a tie, the corporate chef has sole discretion in final ranking of the recipes.
All winners will be notified of final prize(s) on or about April 1, 2021 via email.
