Grinders Coffee does it again, expanding its medal collection at Australia’s largest roasting competition.

Grinders Coffee received exceptional recognition for its Jack’s Cafe Blend at the 2023 Golden Bean Australasia awards, Australia’s largest roasting competition.

Golden Bean helps to support the growth of the coffee industry by rewarding coffee roasters, the people most vital in the chain for all coffee businesses.

Following more than 1,200 entries, Grinders Coffee took home equal first place for its blend carefully and exclusively curated for Jack’s Cafe, Hungry Jack’s cafe network for the Large Chain category.

Grinders have been roasting coffee for Jack’s Cafe for over four years, going from strength to strength during this time. There are now more than 450 Jack’s cafes around the country, all serving barista made coffee using freshly roasted and ground, award-winning Grinders Coffee.

Head of Jack’s Cafe for Hungry Jack’s Joy Villanueva congratulated Grinders Coffee on its win. “It’s now official. The coffee is better at Hungry Jack’s,” Joy said.

“Coffee quality and great service are key to customer satisfaction at Jack’s cafe and with Grinders receiving this well-deserved recognition for the Jack’s Cafe blend, our customers can rest assured they are being served premium coffee ever time”.

Grinders Coffee General Manager, Sally Byrne said the award is a testament to the exceptional Grinders Coffee roasters, adding “We are delighted to receive this recognition and take home the gold medal at Golden Bean this year for our blend at Jack’s Cafe. As a leading coffee roaster and a key partner of Jack’s Cafe, we are constantly striving to deliver the highest quality coffee, day in, day out. We are proud of our partnership and will continue to work relentlessly to roast our coffee to perfection, locally in Melbourne.
