Australia’s first International Coffee Roasting Competition

Melbourne’s undisputed reputation as the coffee capital will be strengthened as the Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria (RASV) launches Australia’s first international coffee roasting competition in the lead up to the 2013 Melbourne International Coffee Expo (MICE) and World Barista Championships. 

Entries for the inaugural Australian International Coffee Awards (AICA) will open on Tuesday 2 April, with judging conducted from Tuesday 7 to Thursday 9 May at Melbourne Showgrounds.

Following the success of the Royal Melbourne Fine Food Awards coffee competition, the RASV has created a stand–alone event open to both local and international coffee roasters and held as a MICE 2013 related event.

Entries to the AICA close on Wednesday 24 April and winners will be announced on Thursday 23 May.

Why you should enter:

  • Benchmark your coffee against industry standards
  • Receive feedback from independent local and international industry experts
  • Opportunity to market your coffee with a seal of quality
  • Promote your coffee through associated events

MICE2013 will be held from Thursday 23 to Sunday 26 May at Melbourne Showgrounds and is Australia’s largest dedicated coffee trade show.
