Introducing the Good Food Awards

Today I eat the last of the homemade toffee that’s been tempting my hand since the start of the holiday season. With a stab of regret, I shake the tin in disbelief—all that toffee, really gone? I note the carnage: chocolate boxes emptied, cookie Santas decapitated, gingerbread houses gnawed to their foundations.

However, over the past several months, GFA has come under fire from critics within specialty coffee who have questioned the awards’ process as well as its sustainability requirements.
