We found the 2013 Golden Bean thoroughly enjoyable and well organised. We were keen to get involved in judging the amazing array of coffee categories submitted to the competition. The dedication and skill of the team involved behind the tasting is to be commended. It is a great opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with some of the most knowledgeable industry members in a comfortable environment.
This year Bennetts became representatives of the newly introduced ‘Green Bean Zone’. Here we had the opportunity to showcase some of our new specialty micro lots and discuss the future prospects of the industry. This new category to the event was a great way for green bean suppliers to share information not only with their customers, but also with each other. The coffee world is extremely interconnected, and getting everyone in the same room is a beneficial opportunity for sharing knowledge and improving the industry.
A big cheer to Sean and the Café Culture team for putting on a great event. We look forward to doing it all again next year!
