It’s been a good year for Evans Brothers. Fresh off winning a third-place award in Coffee Fest’s Best Coffeehouse in America competition, the Sandpoint favorite grabbed another award last week from the Good Foods Award competition.
Evans Brothers’ Kenya Gatundu Karinga blend earned a badge of distinction in the San Francisco competition’s sixth year. The coffee blend was honored not only for its taste and quality but also for the social responsibility and environmental friendliness of its production. It’s the second honor Evans Brothers has enjoyed from the Good Food Awards.
“The coffee category is always highly competitive, with the best roasters from North America submitting their very best coffees,” company representatives wrote on the Evans Brothers website. “The competition gets tougher every year, so it is a huge honor to repeat!”
The Good Foods Awards were started six years ago to recognize growing artisinal craftsmanship in a variety of categories, including beer, cider, charcuterie, cheese, chocolate, coffee, confections, honey and pickles.
“The Good Food Awards celebrate the kind of food we all want to eat: tasty, authentic and responsibly produced,” the organization says on its website. “We grant awards to outstanding American food producers and the farmers who provide their ingredients.”
