Each year since the launch of this website in 2009, Your Sprudge Editors have composed an august list honoring the best and brightest in specialty coffee. We call it The Sprudgie Awards, and our past winners are a remarkable assembly of industry leaders, stalwarts, fresh faces, hot topics from yesteryear, and even the occasional flash in the pan.

The selection process is now beginning for the 2015 Sprudgie Awards. Please enter your nominations in the form below. We will only consider nominations that honor new cafes, products, and writing that opened/launched/published in 2015. Votes are accepted until Sunday, December 13th at 11:59 PM.
