Since then it has been travelling around the globe and has received numerous awards: the Pilar Bardem Award at the Cineposible Festival, the Best Animated Film Award at the International Film Festival in San Joaquin, the Best Animation Short and Special Jury Prize at the animation festival Mundos Digitales, the Best Animation at the 22nd Foyle Film Festival, and the Best Film at the Levante International Film Festival. In the 3D World December 2010 issue the Chicory 'n' Coffee was listed among "the 100 CG shorts you must see".
