Muffin Break declared overall champion at 2014 Golden Bean awards


Premium bakery-cafe brand, Muffin Break, has been acknowledged by the best of the best in Australia’s coffee industry, winning a top-gong at the 2014 Golden Bean Awards.

Muffin Break – which this year celebrates its 25th anniversary of Australian operations – was announced Overall Champion in the Chain Store / Coffee Franchise category of the 9th annual Compak Golden Bean Coffee Roaster Competition event, recently held over four days (8-11 October 2014) at Port Macquarie.

Outclassing its competitors in a blind taste-test, Muffin Break’s proprietary coffee blend was singled-out by the event judges and contributed to its overall top-score win in the highly-competitive best Coffee Franchise category.

The Muffin Break franchise brand is owned by The Foodco Group, which also owns and exclusively uses Jahnus Specialty Coffee, run under the leadership of Jahnus Head Coffee Roaster, Jeremy Regan.

Muffin Break National Brand Manager, John Macphail, said the Golden Bean accolades are the upshot of an unrelenting commitment to quality by the Muffin Break team – particularly Jeremy Regan.

“To not only be acknowledged but named an Overall Champion in the world’s largest competition for coffee roasters is a significant and well-deserved tribute to the unrelenting commitment to quality by the Muffin Break team.

“From our Head Coffee Roaster Jeremy Regan who constantly fine-tunes the Muffin Break signature blend, to the café baristas who ensure each cup is served to the highest standard, I am truly delighted with this recognition of a very deserving and dedicated team,” said John Macphail.

The Muffin Break signature blend can be enjoyed ready-to-drink via more than 280 Muffin Break outlets trading across Australia and internationally, and the award-winning blend is also available for purchase in take-home packs.
