Its ALL Good with the 2020 Good Food Awards Finalists

its all good

GFA, 2020

Good coffee never gets old.

Good coffee is always a specialty.

Good coffee is what this culture welcomes.

Given that good coffee by the standards of The Good Food Awards is highlighted during an annual awards ceremony and marketplace, it’s time to recognize the batch of roasters recognized as finalists for the coveted 2020 award.

Twenty-seven roasters are listed as finalists from the nation as far west in California to the east in New Jersey.

Mirroring last years’ finalists, California roasters again lead the nominations. This year they take four slots, last year they took  five. Oregon, Massachusetts and Wyoming follow with two nominations each. A special shout for some newish comers to the list including Confident Coffee Roasters out of Arkansas, H+S Coffee Roasters from Wyoming and Penstock Coffee in new Jersey.

Countries represented include Colombia, El Salvador, Ethiopia and Guatemala with naturals and Geisha coffees making a cameo.  The attention given to roasters, countries and states making great coffee and thus contenders on the Good Food Awards facilitates greater visibility for them and hopefully increases the drinking publics knowledge of who they are and what they’re making.

The official ranking by state is:

Arkansas (1), California (4), Colorado (1), Georgia (1), Kansas (1), Maine (1), Massachusetts (2), Michigan (1), Minnesota (1), New Jersey (1), Ohio (1), Oregon (2), Pennsylvania (1), South Dakota (1), Tennessee (1), Texas (1), Virginia (1), Washington (2), Wisconsin (1), Wyoming (1).

A new decade is upon us -2020- and here’s to drinking the best in coffee from the platform of the Good Food Awards and beyond.
