EVANSVILLE, Ind., U.S. — Evansville Coffee Company brought home three medals from the fifth annual Golden Bean North America Roasting Competition. Since its launch in 2015, the Golden Bean North America has grown to include more than 1,300 coffees submitted to this year’s competition from the best roasters across the USA and Canada.
Evansville Coffee Company won bronze medals for each of their submissions in the Pour Over Filter category, for their Honduras – Finca San Isidro natural processed coffee, the San Miguel Bonanza “Pacamargo” from Guatemala, and Organic Bali Kintamani natural processed coffee.
“We submitted some of our favorite coffees, but also among our most difficult to roast. Natural processed coffees take more time and care to produce impressive results, and we are just glad the industry agrees that we offer something exceptional in the coffees we select,” commented Tim Piazza, owner and roastmaster at Evansville Coffee Company.
“Winning national recognition while in just our third year of business speaks highly of the coffee producers and importers we work with.”
The competition is blind-judged over a three-day period by professional coffee roasters from across North America. Each coffee is tasted and scored by two judges, and the best coffees are additionally evaluated by category judges for final determination. Coffees are submitted in 10 categories, and all submissions must be coffees that the roaster offers as part of their available selections and not special coffees obtained for the sole purpose of entering the competition.
