World of Coffee Milan has come and gone, and left in its wake are a litany of new and/or just-announced releases to keep the specialty coffee world abuzz. But with over 350 exhibitors, even if you were lucky enough to walk the halls of the Milano Convention Centre for all three days, there’s a pretty good chance you still didn’t get to see all the latest and greatest on display for the global cohort of coffee brands.

And while trying to enumerate all the big reveals from the weekend would be near-impossible, you can nonetheless get a good idea of where the industry is heading by taking a look at the Best New Product and Coffee Design Award winners. Each year, at Expo and World of Coffee, brands can submit their new products and package designs to the Specialty Coffee Association to be assessed by an expert panel who will ultimately choose the winners. Categories range from roasting to consumer and commercial goods to even non-coffee items. Some of the winners you’ve already seen featured here on Sprudge.

So if you missed Milan and want to know what’s new and what’s hot, this is a great place to start. Here are the winners of the Best New Product Awards and Coffee Design Award from 2022 World of Coffee Milan.
