We are proud to announce that our Moras Negras won a 2020 Good Food Award! It is an honor and privilege to highlight this beautiful coffee and all of the hard work that goes into providing this coffee, from farm to cup.
Every year the call goes out across the country to makers and craftspeople to submit their very best to the Good Food Awards. Founded in 2008, the brainchild of the creators of the Slow Food movement, the Good Food Foundation sets out to celebrate “good, clean and fair food”. The Good Food Awards pit the best of the best against one another in a spectacularly delicious showdown to celebrate the Good Food movement. Whereas there is often a distinction made between food that is sustainable and food that tastes good, the Good Food Awards set out to determine exceptional products that are both.
This year the awards considered over 2,000 entries from all 50 states in categories ranging from honey to fish, beer to coffee. We are incredibly honored to be selected as winners of the 2020 Good Food Awards for our roast of the Mi Finquita, Panama Geisha by Tessie and Ratibor Hartmann. This is our third time winning a Good Food Award, having won for our roasts of Finca la Mula and Limu Dabessa in 2016 and 2018, respectively. It is always an honor to be considered in such an elite company, and we strive to exude the quality and standards the Good Food movement demands.
Husband and wife team, Ratibor and Tessie Hartmann started their farm Mi Finquita on the Volcan Baru as an open air laboratory of coffee innovation. At Mi Finquita, the Hartmanns experiment with highly controlled fermentation and processing methods to produce sustainable coffees with exceptional, exotic cup profiles for a global audience. We have known Tessie and Ratibor for years, and have had the honor of visiting the Hartmann estate and eating at the family dinner table. The incredible hard work and dedication to coffee by the entire Hartmann family is apparent in the exceptional coffees they produce, the hard work and dedication we strive to represent in our roast of the Moras Negras.
