Byron hinterland coffee companies picked up a swag of awards at last week’s Sydney Fine Food Show coffee tastings. Represented were producers from Bangalow, Booyong, Federal and of course Newrybar.

The espresso category is the region’s forte, it seems, with four silver and two bronze medals awarded: Byron Beans’ Dark Combo; Bun Coffee’s 100% Shade Grown Rainforest Blend; and Byron Bay Coffee Company’s (BBCC) Organic Espresso and Exotic blends.

Kahwana Estate, Green Cauldron Coffee Company and Bun Coffee picked up bronzes for their Magma, Quarter Jack and 100 per cent Arabica blends respectively.

Byron Beans, Kahwana, Bun and BBCC all picked up bronzes in the cappuccino category and in at least one of the two plunger-coffee categories.

For a full list of local awards go to the results page of the Sydney Fine Food Show website.
