The Seventh Annual Sprudgie Awards

super-final

Welcome to the winners announcement for the 7th Annual Sprudgie Awards, honoring the best in coffee.

Nominees for each category were chosen by public ballot, with input from our editorial team in the form of an “Editor’s Pick” for each field. Public voting for the Sprudgies took place over several weeks in December 2015, with the ballot box closing at 11:59 PM on Sunday, January 3rd. The winners below represent the unbridled will of the people, and the voice of you, our readers, who represent the largest, most educated and dedicated group of coffee enjoyers on the planet.

Thanks to the thousands and thousands of voters who helped make this Sprudgies year such a success. Congratulations to the entire field—to us, every single 2015 finalist was a winner.
