Australia’s national espresso machine specialist, Tiger Coffee, has blitzed the Coles Supplier Awards, winning the Best Product Launch Supplier of the Year.

After rolling out coffee machines in all Coles Express stores across Australia, Tiger Coffee was recognised at the biggest-ever Coles Supplier Awards which celebrate excellence in providing merchandise, services and goods not-for-resale across the business.

The business from Artarmon in NSW worked with Coles Express to develop a new espresso machine to provide commuters with small, medium and jumbo sized coffees, made with fresh locally roasted Arabica coffee beans and the options of full cream or light milk.

Coles Managing Director John Durkan said Tiger Coffee was a deserving recipient of the award.

“Tiger Coffee was instrumental in the successful Coles Express Coffee Rollout project so that our customers can enjoy a specially blended coffee for their morning or afternoon pick-me-up,” he said.

Tiger Coffee CEO George Miller said he was thrilled to have received the award.

“I am extremely proud of the entire Tiger Coffee team across Australia for exceeding expectations for the roll out of espresso machines at all Coles Express outlets around Australia,” he said.

The Coles Supplier Awards were announced at a Gala Dinner at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre
