The Australian International Coffee Awards (AICA) is the Asia Pacific’s premier coffee roasting competition. The AICA celebrates and promotes coffee roasting excellence in Australia, New Zealand, the Asia Pacific region and around the world and is an event partner of the 2016 Melbourne International Coffee Expo (MICE).

The 2016 AICA attracted 658 entries from 143 local and international coffee roasters, with coffees from New Zealand, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Korea, Singapore, Canada, USA and Great Britain. A diverse judging panel of 30 local and international coffee experts assessed each of the entries for criteria including aroma, flavour, aftertaste and conformity to type, to award gold, silver and bronze medals.

We’re very pleased to announce that we won a Bronze Medal in the “Milk Based Coffee” category. This was awarded to our Forte blend that recently won a Silver Medal in the Compak Golden Bean Awards.


We congratulate all the other winners and thank The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria (RASV) for organising and facilitating this event.
