The coffee roasters industry choice awards

This year’s Compak Golden Bean Coffee Roasters Competition hosted the inaugural Coffee Roasters Industry Choice Award. 
This is a national award across three categories (small, medium and large roasters) with a holistic approach to the judging criteria based on the success of the coffee roaster across all facets of their business.
The industry panel short-listed the nominations to a final of 10 coffee roasters for each category, and the winners were announced at the Golden Bean Awards.
