Award Winning Specialty Coffee
Last week the Golden Bean North America Competition took place in Columbus, Ohio. Part competition, part conference, Golden Bean North America is an annual event that celebrates excellence in coffee roasting across the North American region. This competition invites coffee roasters from the United States and Canada to showcase their skill and craftsmanship. Entries are blind-tasted and evaluated by experienced judges who assess a range of factors including flavor, aroma, acidity, body, and balance. The competition features various categories such as espresso, milk-based espresso drinks, and filter coffee, with top-scoring coffees earning medals and recognition. We are honored to announce that this year 3 of our single origin coffees won Bronze medals in the filter coffee category. The filter coffee category was judged by brewing the coffees in the Behmor Brazen Plus “at home” automatic brewer. A panel of judges evaluated the coffees' sweetness, acidity, mouth feel, uniqueness of flavor and balance. We submitted our three newest additions to our menu: the Hamasho- Ethiopia, Nyeri Estate- Kenya, & Finca Muxbal- Mexico and are ecstatic that all three medaled!
This is our third time competing in the Golden Bean, and second time medaling—having medaled in the 2019 Golden Bean competition. Try all three via our Golden Bean Bundle option.
