Roast Magazine has just announced the winners of their 3rd annual Roaster of the Year Award.

Macro Category
Winner: Intelligentsia (Chicago).  It’s hard to say too many good things about Intelly’s commitment to great coffee, from the farm to the cup.  Read this super article about green coffee buyer Geoff Watts, and this note from Geoff regarding Fair Trade and Direct Trade.
Runners-Up: Coffee Bean International and Portand Roasting (both Portland, OR)

Micro Category

Winner: Metropolis Coffee (Chicago)
Runners-Up: Cinnamon Bay Coffee (Clearwater, FL), Sacred Grounds (Aracta, CA)

All these roasters offer at least some environmentally-friendly coffees, a great testament that sustainability does not sacrifice quality. Congrats to these roasters.
