Our head roaster, Stacey, recently took a trip down to Portland to compete at the Compak Golden Bean Coffee Roasters Competition and Conference, and are excited to announce that our SWP Decaf 2 Wheel Spro won a Bronze Medal!
The Golden Bean, September 16th-19th, is the largest competition of its kind worldwide, bringing together over 100 North American coffee companies to share knowledge, explore new techniques and most importantly - drink lots of coffee. Each coffee was judged through a blind tasting by the roasters, and with more than 10 different categories and brewing methods including espresso, milk based, emersion/filter coffee, and decaf coffee, we were certainly kept buzzing!
We are honoured to have our decaf espresso recognized for its creamy caramel and fruit flavour and pleased to have shared this experience with so many amazing coffee companies!
Conference Highlight: After three straight days of tasting (no complaints here...) we celebrated at the Portlandia themed Awards Ceremony!
