Regional coffee roasters put in strong performances at the annual Golden Bean Awards in Portland, Ore.
Altogether, Sandpoint coffee roaster Evans Brothers took home three bronze medals for its Kenya Gatuyaini in the pour-over category, its Finca El Guachepelin in the Single-Origin espresso category and its Headwall Espresso in the short-black espresso category. Evans Brothers joined Spokane’s Roast House, which took home six medals, for a successful night representing Inland Northwest coffee.
The Golden Bean Awards is the largest coffee roaster competition and conference in the world, with events organized throughout the world. The event in Portland covered the Golden Bean’s North American competition.
