- 1000 Faces Coffee is a Good Food Awards winner
- Award recognizes food businesses for environmental and social responsibility in conjunction with taste criteria
- Coffee beans are produced on a certified organic farm in Ethiopia
A local Athens coffee roasting company has an award-winning brew.
Coffee’s up and this cup has an award-winning taste. Thousand Faces Coffee is a 2014 Good Food Awards winner. The award is a Seedling Projects initiative, which supports the sustainable food movement. The award recognizes food businesses for environmental and social responsibility in conjunction with taste criteria.
The coffee is judged on a number of taste criteria. In an industry where many claim to have high-quality coffee, co-founder Benjamin Myers, says the award is an objective judgement of your coffee.
The winning coffee is called Suke Outo. The beans are produced on a certified organic farm in Ethiopia. Co-founder, Jan Kozak says,
“You get the sense that it’s an agricultural product when you look at it in this state and you can smell it and it’s got that sort of more vegetal quality to it.”
That coffee stays completely air tight while it’s in the container en route to Athens.
The organic certification requires that the Ethiopian farm does not use any synthetics. Thousand Faces Coffee is the defending their title as they also won the award in 2013. The roasting company is located on Barber Street and is open to the public.
