As a roaster, you need to invest in professional development. Your growing knowledge is one way to help your business expand. The Pentair® Everpure® Golden Bean is this September 13–16 in Portland, Oregon, and they are looking for roasters to compete, and attend as delegate judges.

Golden Bean is a four-day event where coffee roasters and other industry coffee professionals attend and are part of the full conference—comprised of tastings, informative workshops, and networking opportunities. All skill levels and palates are welcome—Golden Bean needs as many people who enjoy drinking coffee and as many clean refreshed palates as possible to judge lots of great coffees, many times over.

As a judge, you will have the opportunity to judge tasty coffees at two two-hour sessions and attend informative workshops that cover latest trends in the roasting business.

The biggest advantage of being a delegate at Golden Bean is the networking. The judging is a non-competitive environment where roasters can get to know each other and form lasting connections. Roasters who have attended Golden Bean competitions have created long term industry connections and friendships.

If you have any questions about being a delegate judge at the Pentair Everpure Golden Bean this September, please email
