    Hello Leigh

    I put golden bean into Quick Search at the top of the page and came up with some history of CoffeeSnobbers results over the years.

    Re: Golden Bean 2011

    Results are in!

    CoffeeSnobs Roasted picked-up:

    Decaf Wow! - Bronze
    Australia Mountain Top Rays Selection #789 - Bronze
    Tanzania Kyaurinde FairCrack Pulped - Silver.

    The last one really brings a tear of joy.* From a village that wasnt producing coffee good enough for export... FairCrack funded a pulper and not only is the coffee great but it won a silver medal.*
    8-) TOO COOL.* 8-)
    Im going to send the medal to the farmers.... they deserve it.

    Huge congrats to all the CS Site Sponsors who also scored medals. Cosmorex , Cuppacoffee , Di Bella , Supreme Roasters and Veneziano.
    Also big congrats to all the BeanBay customers that scored more than a dozen more medals using CS green beans!

    All the results are on the Cafe Culture webpage now:
