If you can believe it, even coffee roasters are susceptible to the charms of “Awards Season.” Our version of the Emmys is called The Golden Bean, and this year over 450 North American coffee roasters submitted over 1300 coffees to be judged against one another in several different categories. Last year we had the good fortune to take home four bronze medals in multiple categories, but this year we stepped it up and took home six bronze medals! While we were hoping for a silver medal or two, we’re still extremely happy with our results and the quality of our coffees. Here’s a quick rundown of our award-winning coffees this year:
Zing Blend -- BRONZE, espresso
Zing Blend -- BRONZE, milk-based (latte)
Ethiopia Keramo Washed-- BRONZE, single-origin espresso
Ethiopia Keramo Washed -- BRONZE, filter
Costa Rica El Rodeo Honey -- BRONZE, pour over/filter
Guatemala San Miguel Bonanza – BRONZE, pour over/filter
Thank you for all your support in helping us achieve our vision of bringing exceptional coffee to the Midwest and beyond! We always appreciate recognition from our peers in competitions like The Golden Bean and sincerely appreciate your support of our small business.
