BLACK GOLD(TM) ESPRESSO FROM EUROPRO IMPORTS TAKES TOP HONORS AT NATIONAL BLIND JUDGING

 BALTIMORE, June 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Black Gold Espresso, the original blend of gourmet coffee produced by Baltimore-based Europro Imports, Inc., has won an Award of Excellence from the Fine Beverage & Food Federation, with one of the highest ratings ever awarded.
 The award is based on the results of a series of blind judgings conducted by a panel of five-star restaurant owners, chefs and food and beverage directors.
 Black Gold Espresso scored higher than any other espresso ever tasted by the federation's judges, which noted its "deep, rich aroma" and "full body." Other comments included "wonderful aroma" and "complex!" Black Gold received near perfect scores across the board for taste, freshness, appearance and overall impression.
 Europro Imports will receive the award during the 1993 Fine Spirit, Wine & Food Tasting in New York in mid-July. The award is produced by the R.S. Owens Company, the producer of the Oscar(R), Emmy and Tony awards.
 "Endorsing superior products furthers our goal of preserving the fine dining experience," said Scott Platek, director of programs for the Fine Beverage & Food Federation, a national network of more than 28,000 hotel and restaurant professionals based in San Francisco. "We make such an endorsement enthusiastically in the case of Black Gold. I don't think there is a single person who would disagree that it's just amazingly terrific coffee."
 Black Gold Espresso, roasted in Minnesota, distributed throughout the United States and exported internationally, is the only American- made coffee and only one of three espresso coffees in the world to receive the Award of Excellence from the Fine Beverage & Food Federation.
 Black Gold Espresso can be found in restaurants and espresso carts around the world. Europro Imports sells enough Black Gold Espresso coffee beans each week in the mid-Atlantic region alone to make 40,000 cups of espresso.
 The specialty coffee is made from 100 percent Arabica beans and roasted utilizing the European slow roasting method and cooled without water, yielding more cups per pound of coffee. This method allows the quality and flavor of the coffee to remain in the bean rather than being burnt out, giving the coffee a distinctive flavor, body and aroma. Black Gold is available in caffeinated and decaffeinated blends.
 Black Gold Espresso will tour the country with the Fine Beverage & Food Federation over the next six months to include such cities as New York and Boston.
 Europro Imports, Inc. is also the exclusive importer and distributor of the Italian-made Faema espresso machines in the Baltimore-Washington- Northern Virginia corridor.
