Party! 2022 Golden Bean Welcome EventAugust 22, 2022 (Published: August 20, 2022)
We were thrilled to host The Golden Bean Welcome event at our Crimson Cup Innovation Lab!
Over 75 coffee roasters from across North America came to celebrate at our SCA-certified Premier Training Campus.
We served up fun, music, finger foods and libations to get the party started.
The festivities kicked off the world’s largest coffee roasting competition, The Golden Bean North America.
The 2022 competition drew over 700 entries competing for the overall title of Golden Bean, Chain Store/Franchise Champion, and gold, silver and bronze medals.
“We were thrilled to bring so many coffee pros together for a fun and festive evening,” said Crimson Cup Founder and President Greg Ubert.
“Competitions like this showcase the hard work of the farmers who grow the coffee we roast and allow us to compare our sourcing and roasting skills to those of other elite roasters.”
“The Golden Bean has been running now for nineteen years in Australia and is in its eighth year in North America,” said Sean Edwards, Golden Bean Founder and Head Bean.
“It is one of the key elements in the growth of the coffee industry by way of rewarding the coffee roasters, the vital person in the chain for all coffee businesses.”
The event brings coffee roasters from across North America together to network, enhance their personal development and taste the finest coffees roasted on the continent.
The competition took place August 17 through 20 at the LIFE Vineyard Church, 620 Alum Creek Drive in Columbus. We’ll have results to share soon!
