Golden Bean Awards 2014
More roasting medals this year for Central Victoria’s Custom Coffees.
October saw the running of Australia’s largest and most prestigious awards for specialty coffee roasting, the Golden Bean Awards.
Held in Port Macquarie QLD this year, the event hosted over 1300 entries in twelve categories and was judged by a panel of 200 industry peers, over the week.
The Golden Bean Awards are a huge event on the coffeeroasters calendar and are a sought after award.
In recent years, Custom Coffees has won a total of 5 medals in different categories and 2014 was another one of those winning years for the business.
Custom Coffees entered three coffees into the competition and came away with two medals, and outstanding effort considering the enormous number of entrants and the quality of coffee available.
This year Custom Coffees won a Bronze Medal for our outstanding Fairtrade Organic Cascadia Decaff in the Decaffeinated Latte category, for the third time in a row.
They also took out the Silver Medal in the Organic Espresso category for our beautiful Fairtrade Organic Soul Blend.
“These new awards are a testament to our continued dedication to roasting the excellence, with a dedicated team of ten passionate coffee professionals,” said Andrew McDonald Customs Coffee Director.
Custom Coffees is based in Bendigo Central Victoria and were the first, and continue to be, the leading coffee roaster in Regional Victoria.
“I’d like to congratulate the whole team at Custom Coffees for their dedication, passion and continued pursuit of coffee excellence. You’ve made us proud again this year, well done.” Andrew said.
