Back in September we asked you to nominate the best of European specialty coffee businesses and professionals and you responded with an overwhelming turnout!

After the first round which went on for several weeks we gave you the option of five top scoring nominees in each of seven categories. There were more than 3000 people from across Europe voting for their favourites.
