Time flies when you’re roasting tons of coffee.
Roast Magazine’s Roaster of the Year program is now in its 10th year, with each year surpassing the previous one in volume of quality of submissions — a reflection of some of the amazing work being done by roasters throughout North America.
Applications are now being accepted for the 2015 Roaster of the Year awards, as always in two categories: Micro (roasting less than 100,000 pounds a year), and Macro (roasting more than 100,000 pounds). PFDs of the application are currently available here: Micro, Macro. For more on the program, click here.
The Roaster of the Year awards package includes:
A full length feature story in the Nov/Dec ’14 issue of Roast, a cash prize of $500 and an inclusion to the Roaster of the Year hall of fame on the Roast magazine website. Of course, there is also the associated fame and glory.
The deadline for submissions is July 31st, 2014.
Here is a list of past Roaster of the Year award winners, all of which we’re proud to say are still in business while promoting community, sustainability and quality.
