Newcastle #GetRoasted


The Compak Golden Bean

Coffee Roasters Competition & Conference

Wednesday 11th – Saturday 14th November
Newcastle Jockey Club, Newcastle


Newcastle #GetRoasted

The Compak Golden Bean Australia is turning 10 and this years’ event will be held in Newcastle.  “Newy” is NSW second largest city, home to many of Australia’s leading café / coffee roasting businesses and is in close proximity to the Hunter Valley wine region. Easy access including direct flights from Melbourne and Brisbane and just a short drive up the freeway from Sydney.

The Compak Golden Bean strives to find Australia’s best coffee roasters with medals awarded across a number of different brewing methods. All coffees entered into the competition are blind tasted with many processes incorporated into the event to protect the identity of the bean… it’s what’s in the cup that matters! In addition, judging, scoring and comments are provided to competitors to give independent feedback on each coffee submitted.

As well as entering your coffees we urge you represent your business at the conference to:
• Get involved in the judging process
• Participate in the industry workshops
• Network with your roasting peers
• Network with Green Bean wholesalers, do all your cupping and procure all your GREEN Bean at one place.
Put this in your calendar…  it’s the most caffeinated event in the Australian Coffee Industry.

Newcastle, NSW 11th -14th November 2015

There are a number of exciting new initiatives planned for 2015 which I look forward to sharing with you over the next few months. If you have any questions about the Compak Golden Bean or how you can be involved don’t hesitate to contact me.

So what are you waiting for?
