Beloved local coffee company Walcha Coffee is celebrating their Silver and Bronze medal wins from the Australasian Golden Bean Awards.

Celebrating its nineteenth year in Australia and tenth year in North America, the Golden Bean Awards stand as the world’s largest global coffee roasting competition. The event attracts some of the biggest names in coffee industry. In Walcha’s inaugural year, 2022, they clinched two prestigious bronze medals out of six entries. This year, Walcha Coffee elevated its standing by securing three bronze and two silver medals out of just seven entries.

Established in 2020, Walcha Coffee has quickly grown from a small-town venture into a cherished cornerstone of the small community. Fuelled by local resident Cameron Hayton’s love for exceptional coffee, Walcha Coffee emerged as more than a local brew; it’s a symbol of community pride and a testament to the artistry of coffee craftsmanship.

“Our journey began with an unwavering dedication to quality. From sourcing the finest speciality-grade coffee beans to meticulous roasting, we deliver coffee that makes a cup that embodies the essence of our town,” said Cameron.

Evolving into an iconic local brand, Walcha Coffee’s commitment to quality is not just a tagline; it’s a promise upheld by their skilled roasters and recognised by the Silver and Bronze medals from the Australasian Golden Bean Awards.

“These awards mean the world to us at Walcha Coffee. Winning medals in the Golden Bean competition for the second year running is a testament to the hard work and passion poured into every batch.”

“It’s not just about the medals; it’s about the pride we take in crafting exceptional coffee.”

“This recognition motivates our team to continue pushing boundaries and sharing the best of Walcha with coffee lovers everywhere.”

“Walcha Coffee’s success isn’t just about providing the coffee to brew the perfect cup; it’s about fostering pride and unity within our community. Winning awards like this really puts Walcha Coffee on the international stage,” Cameron said.

“To win these medals—especially silvers—against some of the greatest roasters in the global industry is a huge feat for a small-town company like ours.”

The silver medals qualify Walcha Coffee to compete in the World Series roasting alongside global coffee brands and companies in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.
