    CSR GOLDEN BEAN 2009-2010

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Huge CONGRATS to Anne Cooper, Phil DiBella and the whole Di Bella team for taking home the grand prize in the 2009-2010 CSR Golden Bean Competition

    CS site sponsors did well in all the categories, here are some of the medals awarded (sorry if I missed anyone as I scribbled em on a bar coaster!):

    Filter:
    Bronze - Pioneer Coffee
    Bronze - Coffee Hit
    Silver - Di Bella

    Australian
    Silver - Pioneer Coffee

    Retail Filter
    Bronze - Genovese
    Bronze - CoffeeSnobs
    Silver - Di Bella

    Milk Based
    Bronze - Genovese
    Gold - Di Bella

    Espresso
    Bronze - Genovese
    Bronze - CoffeeSnobs

    Coffee Chain
    Gold - Veneziano

    There were also CS site sponsor judges and baristas on the ground for the 4 days with Ronald from Avacuppa - Craig from Veneziano - David from Makin Espresso *- Anne from Di Bella - Chris & Peter from Cafetto and Mark from Coffee Roasters Australia and of course the current Australian Barista Champion Tim from Pioneer Coffee who all worked hard (REALLY hard) to make the competition run so smoothly.

    Its been a really busy 3 days, a huge shout-out also needs to go to all the baristas, coffee roaster judges and the crew from CafeBiz who put the whole show together including feeding, watering and entertaining 100 odd roasters. We always have a blast and the event is a real highlight in the roasters calendar each year.

    We will update the thread with all the winners when CafeBiz publish the results in the coming days.

    Well done to all!

    Thanks all, it really was a great 4 days. Good people, good times... its an industry full of "colour" but everyone there were on the same side, good coffee roasters VS the bad coffee browners... and everyone knows the good guys always win in the end.

    I just got off the plane and came straight to the snobbery to roast the current bean orders so all the roasted stuff can ship tomorrow morning. (then I can go home!)

    Wow Wow!!

    What an awesome event!! (and not just because we won!! *;) )

    Its a great opportunity to get industry people together to talk, network and learn from each other.

    I have to say it is an absolute honour to win - but most of all to have our coffee judged by industry peers - some of the best and most discerning palates around!!

    We worked really hard this year to create and develop new blends especially for the comp - as we use it as part of our Research and Development where it is an opportunity to experiment with some fabulous origins and really challenge our roasting techniques.

    ...ditto!!

    But, most of all, if I hadnt stumbled across this fabulous site many years ago (as a barista) and been inspired to invest in that popcorn popper (which quickly turned into a Hot Top!!) I wouldnt be where I am today. Seriously!!! It may sound a little far fetched but it is true. This forum is always a reference site for those that want to learn and extend themselves - and even if some dont actively post, many are actively reading and learning!!!

    So Thank-you Coffee Snobs for being my Inspiration!!!!! *:) :) *:) :)

    Anne *:-*
