Can you believe it? We can hardly believe it. Now in its incredible 15th annual edition, The Sprudgie Awards has returned to honoring leadership and excellence in the world of coffee.

We are proudly partnered with Pacific Barista Series to bring you the 15th Sprudgie Awards, and the entire process is free to enter and open to all. There is no fee to submit a nomination, and no membership required to vote, all thanks to the ongoing community support of Pacific Barista Series, whose bedrock support of this initiative makes our annual work possible.

Nominations are now open! This year’s nominations process will run through the holidays, and close in early January. Following the open nominations process, we’ll whittle down to a final list of finalists, and open that up again to a popular vote. Open nominations close Monday, January 8th at 11:59 PM PST. Finalists will be announced shortly thereafter.
