The Good Food Awards seeks to recognize truly outstanding single origin coffees. A diverse panel of some of the coffee trade's most accomplished tasters will engage in a full day of blind tasting and scoring to select the top coffees. This year, all entries must be certified through one or more of the following programs: NOP Organic, Fair Trade (FTUSA/Fairtrade International), SMBC Shade, Rainforest Alliance, C.A.F.E Practices, 4C/CAS – Global Coffee Platform or Demeter Biodynamic. All entries will be evaluated on brewing equipment donated by Espresso Supply and Bonavita: BV1900TS, Baratza Forte BG grinders, and Malkhonig EK43 grinders. The Blind Tasting will be overseen by the Good Food Awards coffee chairs and will use score sheets and protocols similar to those used in the Roasters Choice Competition. The recipe will be 60g coffee to 1L water. The pre-infusion feature will not be activated on the brewer. Beans will be ground to a medium coarse grind, with final calibration for brews and grind size done on site based on visual inspection, Good Food Awards Coffee Committee taste tests and TDS readings. Judges will undergo group calibration before scoring any coffee submissions.
