The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria (RASV) is inviting coffee roasters from around the world to enter the 2019 Australian International Coffee Awards.
The awards, now in their seventh year, celebrate and promote excellence in coffee roasting in Australia and internationally.
“The Australian International Coffee Awards provide the opportunity for coffee roasters to be recognised for their quality brews. There is so much that goes on before the beans make it to the café and this process is often overlooked when we grab a coffee from our local cafés,” RASV CEO Paul Guerra says.
“Participants in the Australian International Coffee Awards can benchmark their products against industry standards, receive feedback from independent industry experts, market their trophy winning coffee, and promote their products through associated events.”
William Angliss Institute Coffee Academy Teacher Coordinator Melissa Caia will oversee 2019’s judging panel.
“The high calibre of industry experts as judges, headed by Melissa, not only cements the credibility of the awards, but offers producers who participate a unique and highly valued opportunity to have their roasts assessed by the global industry’s best,” Paul says.
With judging to take place from 20 to 22 March 2019 at the Melbourne Showgrounds, and winners to be announced by the end of March, the RASV encourages coffee roasters to get their entries in early to be part of the competition.
Entries for the competition close 22 February 2019.
