Lizzy’s Fresh Coffee received honors in four categories.
Silver Medal: Guatemala Huehuetenango, Organic Espresso Category
Silver Medal: Ethiopia Layo Taraga, Single Origin Espresso Category

“We are truly grateful to the amazing farmers around the globe that cultivate beautiful coffees” says Liz Roquet, President and Founder of Lizzy’s Fresh Coffee. “It’s our goal to roast these coffees to their best potential for our customers to enjoy every day, so gaining industry awards for our roasts is a wonderful validation of our efforts. We’re honored and thrilled.”

This is the third year that Lizzy’s has earned recognition, previously winning silver and bronze medals in the 2016 and 2017 Golden Bean competitions. This year’s winning roasts highlight Roquet’s roasting skill with four distinct coffees. The Guatemala Huehuetenango, grown by female farmer Ana Alvarado Domingo, and boasting notes of toffee, lemon, strawberry. The Costa Rica La Trinidad community coffee is sweet, with hints of grapefruit, lemon & melon. Ethiopia Layo Taraga brings surprising apricot, persimmon and caramel flavors to the cup. Finally, Posy was a blend developed only for the competition, and will be featured in the Lizzy’s Coffee Bar throughout the fall.
