ALDI Australia has taken the top spot, winning Gold and crowned the Overall Large Chain Champion category at the 2024 World Series of the Golden Bean Awards for its Lazzio coffee beans proving it officially offers the best coffee in the world at prices every Aussie can afford. 

The Golden Bean is the world’s largest coffee roasting competition, bringing together the best of the best in the coffee roasting industry, with the World Series being the grand final between the Northern hemisphere and the Southern hemisphere, to crown the world champion of roasting. This year there were over 2,500 submissions.  

Having been crowned Australia’s best at the Australian Golden Bean Awards in 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022, this is the first World Series win for ALDI Australia’s Lazzio coffee, roasted by Melbourne local, and ALDI Austrlalia’s long-term partner Black Bag Roasters.  This win not only cements Australia’s position as the best coffee in the world, but confirms that the world’s best coffee can be found at ALDI. 
The multi award-winning Lazzio range available exclusively at ALDI includes Lazzio Medium and Dark Coffee Beans, Lazzio Medium and Dark Ground Coffee, Lazzio Organic Ground Coffee, Lazzio Single Origin Brazil and Colombia Beans, as well as the newest and most premium coffee blend developed to date, Lazzio Luxe Blend Beans. 

“As a nation obsessed with its coffee, we’re proud to partner with Black Bag Roasters to bring locally roasted, award-winning, world-class coffee to our customers. Adding to our golden trophies with this World Series is another nod to the quality we work hard to deliver to our customers by working closely with the best supplier partners. With prices starting at just 10 cents a cup, Lazzio is a luxury everyone can afford,” says Daniel Quinlan, ALDI Australia’s Coffee Buying Director. 

“We are always excited to be recognised for our range of coffee beans, but it is especially humbling to receive such high praise at the World Series of the Golden Bean Awards. Our nine-year partnership with ALDI continues to take us to new heights, and we couldn’t be more pleased with this result,” says Lance Brown, Director, Black Bag Roasters.
