Bean ground & drunk wins 2019 Organic Excellence Award and is the first Certified Organic Coffee in Australia

Massimo Zanetti Beverage Group, through its newly-incorporated Australian subsidiary Bean Alliance Group announces that bean ground & drunk coffee triumphed at the Annual Awards for Organic Excellence in Canberra. 

Bean ground & drunk was crowned “2019 Gold Champion Australian Certified Organic Non-Alcoholic Beverage of the Year” and is the first Certified Organic coffee in Australia. 

Following the announcement, the roaster received a custom-made 22ct gold-plated bud logo, a replication of the certification symbol consumers look for when choosing certified Australian organic products. Bean ground & drunk has been served in “hipster cafés” since 2003, anticipating the hipster trend by nearly a decade.

It’s a tremendous achievement in the organic industry that is highly regarded and highlights our continued commitment and sustainable approach in the organic marketplace. This recognition confirms once again our effort on a global scale, in addition to the certifications already obtained such as the NON-GMO project verification by Kauai Coffee and the achievement of Fair Trade®️, UTZ®️, and Rainforest Alliance®️ certifications”.
