The 2018 North American Golden Bean Cup Coffee Baking Contest was held in Portland, Oregon, where coffee roasters from the US and Canada needed various competitions, including baking filters, Italian concentrated or milk coffee. A total of more than 850 cups of coffee participated in the event. During the three-day selection process, coffee samples were prepared for the participants and then scored based on sweetness, acidity, perception and overall balance. Then, the chief judge will ensure a fair score and provide their own ratings. After a fierce competition, Mike Perry won the Golden Bean Award.
