New York Coffee Festival 2017 Award Winners

You Spoke, We listened


We are very excited to announce the winners of the NYCF 2017 awards, voted for by visitors who attended the festival back in October.

Without further ado, we start with an extremely important question….

What’s the quickest way to a New Yorker’s heart? Why, that would be through donuts, of course! Filled to the brim with Donut Plant’s delectable donuts, KitchenAid took the title of Favorite Key Feature with their scrumptious Donut Wall. Coming in very close behind was The Tim Tam Slam Challenge and Variety’s Cotton Candy Maple Cold Brew.

This year’s show featured some of most exciting booths we’ve seen so it' no suprise that this next one was a close race! Congratulations to Toby’s Estate for winning Favorite Booth. Honourable mentions go to La Marzocco with their ~Miami Vice~ themed booth and Tim Tam’s cozy, purple paradise.

What’s a coffee festival without coffee? Visitors voted on who they thought had the Ultimate Coffee Experience and a big round of applause (yes, we’ve just clapped out loud) goes to our winners, Starbucks Reserve! First Runner-Up was La Marzocco with their rotating schedule of roasters and Second Runner-Up goes to Variety Coffee Roasters.

Brooklyn Roasting Company took the cake for Most Engaging Booth Experience while Bluestone Lane won Favorite Food Vendor.

Last, but most certainly not least, a massive shout out to Flat Brew for grabbing the title of Most Innovative Product!

Thanks to everyone who voted and a huge congratulations to all the winners!
