We`ll admit, it was a bit of a last minute scramble. Our Colombia beans had only arrived a day before we had to send off our entry so it was a `first roast… fingers crossed` kinda day!

The calibre of coffee at this years Golden Bean was exceptional, we tasted some incredible coffees and are so humbled to be considered up there with Australia and New Zealands’ best.

The conference itself was fantastic, and it was such fun to catch up with roasters from Canada, the U.S., Australia and NZ and the many beers helped keep the espresso jitters at bay.

Speaking of beer, we had to sadly fly out before the awards dinner so will have to find another opportunity to whip out the medieval gear. Will does rock a knight costume.

See you next year Port Macquarie, we had a blast.
