People go crazy about their coffee and its inherent routine in their day. Some will happily knock back a cup of instant and be good to go, but others love the process and the ritual of brewing and perfecting their consummate cup. The team at Volt Espresso obviously fall into the latter category and they want to hook up one lucky reader with a trio of their award winning coffees!
Auckland coffee bean roastery, Volt Espresso is excited to announce their success of Gold, Silver & Bronze at last month’s New Zealand Coffee Awards.
Their winning blend – ORGANIC EARTH took home GOLD for Best Organic blend, SILVER for Best Single Origin and BRONZE for Ethically Traded. A second bronze medal was also awarded for a special blend called SIENA, a blend made specifically by Peter Grant, owner of Volt Espresso to celebrate his daughter’s first birthday.
A total of 80 coffee roasters entered 313 categories in the 11th annual Huhtahmaki Coffee Awards.
The awards, held at the Bell Tea and Coffee Company headquarters in Auckland, were judged by a team of 12 experts, headed by international coffee consultant, Instaurator.
“The category that really showed great improvement this year was the single origin category” said Instaurator. “The coffees were much more sophisticated. They were more refined showing much more interesting, nuanced flavours. This is probably because the style in New Zealand has changed” he said.
The winner can choose whether they would prefer beans or ground for plunger or espresso machine. Competition closes Sunday 16th November @ 8pm.
