Great Taste Award glee for Rounton Coffee!
We’re celebrating another successful year at Great Taste Awards 2021, winning three more awards!
This year’s awards have seen our Sparkling Water Decaf and The Rich Roast jump to two-star status, while Daybreak Blend achieved one star for the second year running.
Great Taste is the world’s largest and most trusted food and drink awards; a signpost to a wonderful tasting product, which has been discovered through hours and hours of blind-tasting by hundreds of judges.
We’re totally over the moon to have achieved these awards. That black and gold sticker is a real badge of honour, and it shows that our hard work has paid off. As well as creating delicious coffee, we want to do justice to the people who produce it. Since last year, we’ve developed our strongest relationships to date in Colombia – to be able to put two stars to The Rich Roast is the cherry on top of that relationship.
Also winning two stars was our Sparkling Water Decaf: a chemical-free decaf, which shows off all the best bits of the Peruvian coffee within. We want to give decaf drinkers the best, so we give a lot of love and attention to their coffee. This 2 Star award will be a welcome sight for people who feel like they’ve been forgotten about by the coffee world!
Here’s what the judges had to say:⠀
The Rich Roast: “The coffee delivers a dark chocolate bitterness and caramelised sugar finish. There’s still some brightness to finish. A really good example of a traditional dark roast.” ⭐️⭐️⠀
Sparkling Water Decaf: “An immense amount of character in this decaf and we get the lovely dark chocolate and cherry notes.” ⭐️⭐️ ⠀
Daybreak Blend: “A well-rounded depth of flavour. While the coffee comes up quite sharp to begin with, a subtle sweetness comes through in the finish with a thick, chocolatey note” ⭐️⠀
Thank you to all of the Great Taste judges, and most importantly, everyone who has made these coffees possible – all the way back to when those seeds were first planted in the ground.⠀
