The 2020 Sprudgie Awards nomination period is still open, but not for long.

Now in its truly unprecedented 12th season, The Sprudgie Awards are among the top two most prestigious awards in all of coffee (and it’s not number 2). Each year our readers around the world vote on categories including Best New Cafe, Outstanding Achievement, media honors for writing, social and podcasts, and much more. This year more than ever we are thankful to Pacific Barista Series for keeping the entire process, from nominations to finalist voting, free and open to all.

Open nominations close Sunday, December 6th at 11:59 PM PST. Finalists will be announced on Tuesday, December 8th.
