This year we entered the Compak Golden Bean Roasters competition with a great lineup of coffees. This event has been running successfully for nearly a decade in Australia and has been one of the key elements in the growth of the Australian coffee industry by way of rewarding the coffee roasters, the vital person in the chain for all coffee businesses. The Golden Bean North America competition seeks to find North America's best coffee roasting companies with coffees being judged as Espresso, Milk, and Filter beverages with medals awarded in a number of categories.
We are proud to have walked away with four awards this year: 3 silver and 1 bronze. These were all roasted by our Head Coffee Roaster Mike Mazulo. Go Mike!
1) Silver – Kenya Gachatha AA (category: single origin espresso)
2) Silver – Kenya Gachatha AA (category: emersion filter, aka Espro Press)
3) Silver – Southpaw Espresso (category: espresso)
4) Bronze – Mexican Colima MWP (category: decaffeinated)
Big shout out to our friends at Klatch Coffee Inc. who claimed the title of Overall Champion! We can't wait till next year to get the opportunity to do it again.
