Venezuela's Ismelys Velasquez wins Reinado Internacional del Café 2022


The 50th Reinado Internacional del Café pageant was held on Saturday, January 8 at the Centro Cultural y de Convenciones Teatro los Fundadores in Manizales, Colombia.

Venezuela's Ismelys Velásquez bested over 20 other participants to succeed Iris Yazminhe Guerra of El Salvador and became the fifth Venezuelan representative to win the beauty title.

Maria Eduarda Valotto of Brazil was named Virreina Internacional del Café 2022 while Mariana Loaiza Cifuentes of Colombia, Luciana Martínez Cienfuegos of El Salvador, and Rebecca Linn Stoughton of the United States were the first, second, and third princesses, respectively.

The newly crowned Reinado Internacional del Café 2022 is a 22-year-old model and a student of international relations at Universidad Central de Venezuela.

Ismelys held the titles Miss La Guaira 2020 and Miss Mesoamérica International 2021. She placed in the Top 10 of Miss Venezuela 2020 while representing the Venezuelan state of La Guaira.

Reinado Internacional del Café (International Queen of Coffee) was launched as the Reinado Continental del Café (Continental Queen of Coffee) in 1957, and the name was changed to the current one in 1972 to allow for the participation of countries from America and other continents.

The pageant has always been held in Manizales, Colombia, in January during the Feria de Manizales, and is organized by Instituto de Cultura y Turismo de Manizales annually. More than 20 contestants participate every year.
