The Coffee Club Australia & New Zealand’s Signature Blends has been named among Australasia’s best coffee roasts, as the Golden Bean Awards kick off its 2022 World Series competition.
“At The Coffee Club, we pride ourselves on being coffee obsessed. We give our customers the excellent coffee experience, from blend to brew. To be recognised for the Signature Blends in both Australia and New Zealand is an incredible honour,” says The Coffee Club Australia CEO Nick Bryden.
The Coffee Club took on three bronze and two silver medals for their sustainably sourced, Melbourne-roasted coffee beans, made in partnership with Black Bag Roasters in the Australian leg of the world competition. The four blends were accredited in the filter, milk and espresso categories, highlighting their versatility to be enjoyed in all its freshly brewed glory or with delicious, silky milk.
“The Golden Bean Awards are tested with the most unbiased measures possible. Each coffee, in its category, is made to the same standards and judged by experts blindly. The Coffee Club’s multi-win sweep is a true testament to its beautifully balanced blend,” says Black Bag Roastery Roaster & Coffee Expert Leo Kavanagh.
The win propels the Australian cafe to The Golden Bean Awards World Series competition, set to be held for the first time post-Covid in Kona, Hawaii in the last week of November.
“The Golden Bean Awards World Series brings together the best coffee roasters from around the world to go head-to-head with their best blends,” Mr Kavanagh said. “We are excited to be back again for 2022 to represent our Melbourne-roasted, carefully crafted blends.”
“It is incredibly exciting to know that The Coffee Club’s Signature Blend, which we have been using for 33 years, is still one of the best in Australia, and the world. Our coffee blend has been a meeting point for Australians for so many years and we are proud to and will be showcased on a world stage,” says The Coffee Club Australia co-Director John Lazarou.
