We’re thrilled to announce that two of our coffees were recently recognized at the inaugural Compak Golden Bean North America Coffee Roasters Competition. The event was held in Portland, OR, from Sept. 16 to 19, attracting 400 entries from over 150 roasters across North America.

Awards were presented in eight categories and Canterbury Coffee is proud to have placed in two of them. Both our Verita Espresso and Ethiopia Yirgacheffe won Bronze in the Milk Based category. Our Ethiopia Yirgacheffe also won Silver in the Espresso category.

This roaster-focused competition began in Australia, where it has grown into a respected and popular event over the past 10 years. Given the response to the event’s North American debut, it looks like it has a rosy future here too. We‘re looking forward to submitting our coffees against the industry’s best again next year.
