The Compak Golden Bean is the world’s largest coffee roasters competition and conference
This competition endeavours to find North America’s best coffee roasting business with coffees being judged as Espresso, Milk and Filter beverages with medals awarded in a number of award categories.
The conference attracts attendance from over 100 coffee roasting businesses and consists of a number of educational workshops and social functions. In 2016 the Compak Golden Bean will be held at Castaway Portland, Oregon from 14th – 17th September.
This event has been running successfully now for over ten years in Australia and 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 9 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 Compak 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.
