Welcome to the announcement for the 9th Annual Sprudgie Awards, honoring the best in coffee.

Nominees for each category were chosen by a worldwide public ballot. Public voting for the Sprudgies took place over several weeks in December 2017, with the ballot box closing at 11:59 PM on Sunday, December 31st.

Thanks to the thousands and thousands of voters who helped make this by far the biggest voting field in Sprudgies history. Congratulations to all the nominees—to us, every single 2017 finalist was a winner.

Here they are: your 2017 Sprudgie Awards winners.
