and Most Engaging Stan
d since spreading the joy of coffee is what we love to do most.
“To see crowds gather to watch our live roasting sessions showed real interest in what we do (I even lost my voice after the 10th session!), while the competitive buzz around our Pro-Am Flavour Challenge was exciting. We are thrilled to be recognized in the awards by the visitors who came, saw and enjoyed our coffee.”
