Winter Haven’s Haven Coffee Roasters takes home the title of world’s best coffee.

In Winter Haven, Florida, the best specialty coffee in the world can be found at Haven Coffee Roasters. The owners, Lynsey and Jon Lane, are proud to bring this distinction to their small town. Recently, their coffee roastery competed in Australia in the Golden Bean World Series, the largest coffee roasting competition in the world, and won the title of the world’s best coffee roaster.

At Haven Coffee Roasters, they take pride in crafting a unique and exceptional cup of coffee. The competition judges coffee roasters on three categories: espresso, milk-based, and filter. Head roaster Jon Lane explains that creating the world’s best-tasting coffee involves a lot of trial and error. It takes time to find the perfect blend and adjust the flavors to create a superior product.

Jon Lane started Haven Coffee Roasters three years ago after being laid off during the pandemic. They are the only craft coffee roaster in Winter Haven and supply wholesale beans to local cafes throughout Polk County. Customers like Kim Keen appreciate the intense flavor of their coffee without the burnt taste often found in other coffees.

The award-winning “Ry-Jo Blend” is now available for purchase both in-store and online. The Lane’s hope to elevate Florida’s reputation for specialty coffee and bring awareness to the exceptional beans they roast. While other states may place a higher emphasis on specialty coffee, they believe that Florida has the potential to become known for producing top-quality coffee from the best farms, lovingly roasted by skilled roasters.
