Anne Cooper to take on Natvia Golden Bean Head Judge / Roastress position

NEWS Flash

Anne has been in the coffee industry for 21 years and has had the opportunity to work at all levels – as a barista, cafe owner, Diploma qualified Trainer and Assessor delivering and developing accredited barista training programs and competitions for baristas and franchisees. Anne has also been involved in the AASCA (AustralAsian Specialty Coffee Association) barista competitions where she was the QLD Barista Champion and National Finalist 2006-2008, Finalist Judge at the 2009 & 2011 State and National barista competitions, and also a member of the successful Australian Trans-Tasman Barista Team.

In 2007 Anne moved into the production/manufacturing side of the industry as Roasting Production Manager for Di Bella Coffee. During this time at Di Bella Coffee she had great success with The Golden Bean Roasting Competition, winning a silver medal in 2008 and then winning the overall coveted Golden Bean in 2009. In 2010 Anne achieved the SCAA Cupping Judge Certification & Q Graders Certification before moving to New York City to take up the position of Head Roaster for Dallis Bros Coffee. During her time in the US Anne took part in the many SCAA events where she was a member of the winning team in the highly coveted Team Roasting Challenge at the 2012 Roasters Guild Retreat. She also dusted off her competition tamper and competed in this year’s 2013 US NERBC Regional and USBC National Barista and Cup Tasters Competitions.

Anne recently returned to Australia high on her adventures from New York City, and has now joined the team at Proud Mary Coffee in the role of Head Roaster. Anne brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Natvia Golden Bean and we are excited that she has accepted the challenge to take on Head Judge position at the Golden Bean 2013. We’d like to thank Justin Metcalf for his support and expertise as Head Judge of this event since the first Golden Bean Conference in 2006. His commitment has ensured that the Golden Bean is in good shape for the future.
