Golden Fork from the North of England announced


Following a record-breaking 12,772 entries judged over 75 days, Great Taste, the world’s most revered food and drink awards, has reached its grand finale for 2019. The Great Taste Golden Fork for the best food or drink from the North of England was presented to Dark Woods Coffee from Huddersfield for its “impeccably roasted and graded” Panama La Huella “Cafe de Panama” (Natural), a hand selected, high altitude micro-lot, sourced from a small producer group in Panama. Naturally processed, the ripe coffee cherries are sun-dried on raised beds at La Huella’s Alpha 1 processing mill, so that the coffee beans dry within, giving the coffee its fruity and chocolaty tones and rich body.


Having impressed at every stage of the blind-tasted judging process, the “funky, honeyed, sweet and sour”, Panama La Huella “Cafe de Panama” (Natural) was celebrated as the best tasting product in its region at the Great Taste Golden Fork Dinner held on Sunday 1 September at the InterContinental Park Lane Hotel, London, where over 350 guests from the world of fine food gathered to discover this year’s stars of food and drink.
