We’re so excited to announce that we have won 3 awards for our coffee at the “Great Taste Awards” Competition 2021 in the UK
This year was the first year we decided to enter into a competition for coffee and after much consideration we decided to give it a try at the “Great Taste Awards” competition based out of the UK. These awards are run by the Guild of Fine Food (check them out at gff.co.uk) and are one of the longest running and most prominent competitions in the food industry in Europe and don’t just cover Coffee, but also judge wines, cheeses, beers – pretty much everything food related. If your product impresses the judges, they award it either a 1, 2 or 3 star award.
To enter the competition, we had to send some samples back in February, for judging in March and results announced in September. The categories we entered into were “Whole Bean: Espresso” and “Whole Bean: Filter”. We’re happy that in our debut we managed to collect 3 awards for our submissions: one 2-star and one 1-star for our espresso beans from Peru and Ethiopia and a 2-star award for our Ethiopia filter beans.
Needless to say, it’s awesome to get some impartial and positive feedback from professionals in the industry and to be recognized for the hard work we put in into sourcing and roasting our coffees. It’s also pretty fun to say we now run an award winning Roastery and that we were the only Spanish Roastery to win more than 1-star this year.
Here’s to more award winning coffee next year!
