A Burnaby coffee company has bean named one of the top 30 coffee roasters in North America.
Canterbury Coffee had a strong presence at the Golden Bean Awards last year, and now the managing director of the awards put the Burna-beans on a continental shortlist.
“We have always been very careful in rating coffee businesses, as putting a number to one’s achievements can have major effects on that business – both good and bad. We are now more than confident to pick the top 30 businesses that have earned these ratings through a credible system,” wrote Golden Bean’s Sean Edwards in a LinkedIn blog post.
Also on the list was Vancouver neighbour Pallet Coffee Roasters. Just one other B.C.-based bean business made the list: Oughtred Coffee out of Delta.
In 2018, Canterbury took several bronze medals and a few silvers home from the Golden Bean Awards and was named the “overall large franchise/chain champion.”
“It's a huge honour winning this award. There are lots of really good roasters out there,” said Canterbury roaster Tim Cole at the time of the awards.
