Congratulations

The coastal city of Port Macquarie last week was blessed with the smell of roasted coffee in the air as the industry judged the countries best roasted coffee. Competition organiser Sean Edwards from Café Culture was honoured to bring this global event back to his home town where the event originated eleven years ago. The event attracted 150 industry professionals who participated in the judging process, sorting through over 1300 entries to find one overall winner.

This year’s competition was taken out by national coffee business Di Bella Coffee. This is the second win of a Golden Bean for Di Bella and was well received from the DB Team who enjoyed the awards night. Di Bella coffee founder Phil Di Bella gave an emotional speech about the importance of team work and networking of the whole coffee industry for the growth and betterment of business for all. Phillip has been an industry icon and has mentored many successful businesses around the world. It was a well deserved win for their head Roaster, Raihaan Esat, who spent months developing the winning coffees in the Milk and Espresso categories that, with the combined points, won the overall prize for 2016.

The Franchise/Chain Store Overall Champion for the year was TulipShi Specialty Coffee with their Sydney based stores The Nectar Coffee House. Company Director, Frankie Shi, was also present at the awards to receive his hand crafted Reg Barber Trophy.

This year’s event combined some interesting educational workshops for coffee roasters with a full social activity plan for each evening of the competition. With a Speakeasy Awards Night theme held in the barrel room at Cassegrain Winery, one and all frocked up for the annual occasion.

The Compak Golden Bean Coffee Roasters Competition and Conference is a global competition and is still the largest coffee roasting competition in the world with events now held not only in Australia, but also North America and soon in Europe.
