2012 Good Food Award Winner!
specialty coffee roaster Klatch Coffee was awarded with a Good Food Award in the coffee category by a panel of 13 distinguished coffee experts, on Friday, January 13, 2012, during a star-studded ceremony hosted by Alice Waters at the San Francisco Ferry Building.
Nicknamed the "Oscars" of food, the Good Food Awards were created to honor food and drink producers who have demonstrated a commitment to building a 'tasty,' authentic, and responsible food system that honors farmers and producers.
Criteria for entry includes exemplary flavor - sweet, clean, well developed body, balanced acidity and phenomenal aromatics. Roasters and coffee producers must emphasize fairness and transparency from seed to cup, and use third party certified organic beans.
It is to no surprise that Klatch Coffee's Ethiopian Gedeo Worka was awarded with a Good Food Award Gold Seal, previously named 'Best of Brew' at 2011 National Coffee Association Ultimate Barista Challenge and rated 92 points by coffee expert, Kenneth Davids from CoffeeReview.com.
Roast Magazine was also given the highest honor in the coffee industry to Klatch Roasting!
“Coffee Klatch embodies the soul and heart of a true micro-roaster. Roast magazine chose Coffee Klatch as our 2009 Micro Roaster of the Year because of their commitment to purchasing sustainable coffee, educating employees and customers as well as giving back to the coffee community. And they have some of the best roasted coffee in the country.”
- Roast Magazine's Connie Blumhardt
The competition by Roast Magazine featured the top coffee roasters in the country, but when the grounds settled, Coffee Klatch simply had the best coffee
Since 1993, Coffee Klatch Roasting has been searching the world over for the finest coffee. Buying from only the top 1% of beans available, Coffee Klatch roasts in small batches to ensure optimum flavor and freshness.
