Chiasso wins two Bronze at the Golden Bean Awards

The Golden Bean is the world’s largest coffee roasters competition and conference.

Coffees are judged as Espresso, Milk and Filter with medals awarded in 10 award categories. The aim? To find Australia and New Zealand's best coffee roasting business.

This event has been running successfully now for over twelve years in Australia and is in its fourth year in North America. It is one of the key elements in the growth of the coffee industry rewarding quality and providing invaluable feedback to roasters on how their products can be improved. 

This is our first year entering the Golden Bean and we are so happy to have taken away two bronze Medals!

The first was for our ever popular Milano blend, which has taken away various AICA and NZ coffee awards in the past. Our Ethiopian Kochere was the other bronze winner and this time for the Espresso Single Origin category adding to the Gold Medal and Trophy this coffee won as a pour over filter in the 2018 AICA awards. Quite the year for Kochere! 

With the high standards of specialty coffee in NZ and Australia it's always hard to win awards. This is especially so when you have to send your coffee samples overseas with all the logistics involved - so we are understandably proud of these achievements. 

Both Milano and Kochere are available online to purchase as well as in our Devonport shop.
