September 16th – 19th 2020
@ Tempe Mission Palms in Phoenix, Arizona
Entries Open on 1st April 2020.
This event has been running successfully for six years in North America and over sixteen years in Australia. It has been one of the key elements in the growth of the Australian coffee industry by way of rewarding the coffee roasters, the vital person in the chain for all coffee businesses.
Coffee companies submit their entries on a predetermined date and the coffees are judged through a blind tasting format, in 11 different categories and brew methods. The coffees are judged by roasters that attend the event to participate and enjoy the three-day competition and conference.
The Golden Bean invites roasters to not only send in their entries but also to participate in the seminars and fun sponsored evenings. This creates a valuable opportunity for roasters to network with each other and form great alliances within the industry.
