    CoffeeSnobs just become the overall winner of the Golden Bean competition 2018

    1500 odd entries and the total scores from our Espresso, Latte and Filter were high enough to nail the big one.

    Stunned, shocked, excited and very, very proud to have a room full of peers judge our humble offerings as the best in the country for the second time (surely the second time can't be a fluke!).

    Organic @ Origin
    Barista Blend
    Ethiopia Sidamo Ardi Naturals
    Costa Rica Miel SHB

    All the above beans are what we entered and are available in BeanBay as roasted or green or both.

    Really need to have a shower now and wash off the face paint and wax from the fancy dress presentation party and get at least a little sleep before the sun comes up and I head home.

    It was a surreal punchline to a great night out, I truly didn't expect that our simple offerings roasted with lots of love could stand-up against "fat pockets" and some seriously exotic beans.

    Thanks to the judges that loved what we do as much as we love what we do!

      Unreal! Congrats, Andy! I’m getting more Ardi - That’s one of my favourite coffees ever.

            Far out, Brussels sprout!!

            That's amazing. Well done Andy, you and the crew must be stoked!

            Please!! Can you make this blend available as roasted coffee on the website? Would love to try it

            Great comment about the (relative) humbleness of the beans BTW ��

              Congratulations Andy, amazing result - especially as you say against deep pockets with beans they don't use commercially.
