In my quest to provide the best coffee experience, I have recently taken on an additional identity, that of coffee roaster. In order to further extend my creative freedom, i am now roasting my own coffee, bringing new and exciting flavours to the market. Over the past 3 years i have won 31 Coffee Roasting Awards medals since 2017.
In only my second attempt , I won a Gold medal award in the Golden Bean Competition 2018 in Pour over Category, I was delighted with this achievement. And in late 2018, in another great achievement, I was awarded Winner of CRS Roaster Smackdown Champion held in Melbourne and a Gold Roasting Award from the prestigious AICA 2019 in Espresso Category .
I have been a participant in the Golden bean and the Australia International Coffee Awards since 2017. These competitions feature Australia and New Zealand’s finest coffee roasters and are professionally judged by industry professionals. Awards are predicated on each coffee achieving an objectively scored level. Hence, a GOLD is awarded if a coffee scores within the GOLD benchmark range. These awards and competitions are amongst the biggest abs most prestigious in the world.
In the past three years to get to this standard I have personally put hours of effort tasting and cupping to achieve premium results. This has not taken my focus away from latte art, but rather enhanced my complete experience from bean to cup.
For me these competitions are a great way to set my roasting standard to the highest level , and in 2020, i am really looking forward to expand the company both on a retail and wholesale scale.
And my message to all my followers of latte art is to genuinely try my coffee and experience firsthand my roasting philosophy. To serve a coffee roasted with great care to achieve the perfect balance of flavours. Sweetness, clarity and texture in a cup with great mouthfeel.
I am excited and super pleased to announce that all coffee offerings have won multiple awards in both competitions and are of the highest standard.
I hope you’ll love them just as much as we do – and as much as the judges did.
