Good Food Award

Good Food Award

Let our clapping resound, The Good Food Awards has announced its finalist for its fifth installment of the awards that recognize the craft and specialty of food, and yes, that includes the wonderful and might coffee cherry.

Last year, the finalists were written about in ‘Put a Final On It.’ With coffee, having its own category its quite wonderful to see “the cultural diversity of coffee production” occurring as the Awards says.  A special shout to honey, for its inclusion as a new category to the awards and its vital role in coffee.
