Golden Bean 2012 Winners

November 30, 2012

Milk Based (Latte) Winner: Proud Mary

Proud Mary is more than just a café. We’re a team that approaches each day with excitement, passion and the motivation to make each experience unique.

When we started the business in 2009, we opened with the intention to make coffee better and be creative in our delivery. We see a huge opportunity to make a difference in this industry, through education and relationships.

One of my personal commitments is travel to strengthen our crop-to-cup knowledge and source quality green beans. This year alone I’ve been to most of Central and South America sourcing great coffee. This is our way of developing transparent relationships with farmers, and helping our customers to establish a genuine connection to coffee origins.

Coffee has been part of my life for the last 14 years, and at Proud Mary it continues to be an important driving force of what we do.

At the end of the day, we’re in the coffee industry to make a difference in the greater community. Proud Mary is our little community-hub. It’s our home, and we aim to make each one of our customers feel welcome in our home. Our focus on food is just the same as our focus on coffee. We want to celebrate the finer things in life, and developing lasting sustainable relationships with farmers of quality produce is our way of sharing that.

Our dedicated team at Proud Mary has a real sense of purpose and a clear vision of where we’re going. We support each other and go that extra mile to ensure quality with no stone unturned.

Each day brings a new opportunity, another chance to enjoy a delicious cup of coffee, and to share our coffee ethos. We’re following our own path, and it’s an exciting time as we continue to celebrate all these things that make life special to us. Nolan Hirte, Proud Mary.
