Coffee roasters now have until Friday, 28 February to enter the 2014 Australian International Coffee Awards (AICA).
Held annually by the Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria (RASV), the AICA celebrates and promotes Australian and international coffee roasting excellence, with categories for Espresso, Milk Based, Filter and Syphon Coffee.
Over 600 entries were received in the competition’s inaugural year, with 28 expert judges awarding 174 medals to coffee roasters from Australia and around the world.
RASV CEO Mark O’Sullivan said, “The Australian International Coffee Awards proved a huge success in its debut year, with hundreds of roasters entering their coffee beans from Australia and around the world.”
“The RASV is proud to give Australian and international coffee roasters a unique opportunity to showcase their products, benchmark against competitors and gain feedback from industry experts.”
Judging will take place in March at Melbourne Showgrounds, with the AICA winners to be announced in May 2014 as part of the Melbourne International Coffee Expo (MICE), Australia’s biggest coffee event and partner of the AICA.
