Pine Coffee Supply named Best Coffee in Wyoming by Food & Wine Magazine
Second year in a row
April 5, 2019
Food and Wine Magazine recently completed another nation-wide survey on best coffee in the country by state, and Pine Coffee in Pinedale won for Best in Wyoming. This is the second year in a row the Pinedale café/roastery has won the award for Wyoming.
"Wyoming: Pine Coffee Supply, Pinedale
You don’t typically blow into a town of about 2,000 people—even in a sparsely populated state like Wyoming, where that many people is definitely a crowd—looking for a very modern coffee shop with all the bells and whistles, and if you ask Jim and Cody Hamilton, the father and son duo at the helm of one of the most remote shops to make the list in 2019, they honestly had their doubts, about whether or not the whole thing was going to work. A chain of events led them here, happily for Wyoming, and to open for business; since their appearance on last year’s list, when they were sourcing from elsewhere, the Hamiltons are now roasting their own, starting out with one of those Taiwanese one-kilo roasters, recently upgrading, rather significantly, to keep up with demand."
Food & Wine magazine says American coffee drinkers now have access to a stunning selection of single estate, small lot, hard-to-find, rare varietal, magnificently obscure coffees. They add that as competition stiffens, as new roasters become more experienced, and as more consumers learn to ask for better, the quality of the finished product continues to improve.
This year, the magazine set stricter guidelines for the competition. In order to claim the top spot in a state, companies had to be an actual coffee roaster—for at least two years, if there was enough local competition to make this possible. They held to a more consumer-focused approach, focusing on roasters who were able to deliver the whole package, or close to it—spectacular coffees, great retail operations, and passions for hospitality, community, and, as much as possible, complete sustainability.
The research took a full twelve months to complete. In nearly all cases, site visits (and tastings) were conducted anonymously; at no point in the process did researchers solicit free samples, or accept any kind of influence over the process.
