We're super chuffed to have been awarded Great Taste Gold Stars for all of our blends and origins this year!
To kick things off our Rich Italian achieved 2 Gold Stars fixing it firmly within the top 10% of all entries! Judges commented "when milk is added it gives it an unctuousness, akin to praline that demands a second sip."
gymBrew, our strong, higher caffeine blend also powered into the top 10% with 2 Gold Stars. Judges noted "...it was rounded off into smooth and hugely enjoyable caramel and chocolate."
Signature Gold jumped in with another Gold Star continuing on from 2020, judges highlighting the delicious chocolate notes when milk is added. Our Simmer Down decaf was awarded a Gold Star, judges particularly enjoying the "vanilla fudge" and "pleasingly long finish" adding "no one would guess this was a decaf".
We won't stop here, we continue to evaluate, taste and search for new coffees around the world to add to our champion selection.
