Celebrating the very best in food and drink, Great Taste, the world's most coveted blind-tasted food awards, has reached its grand finale for 2016. The Great Taste Golden Fork for the best food or drink in the North of England was presented to Huddersfield-based Dark Woods Coffee for its hand-roasted and post blended single-estate espresso, Under Milkwood. The espresso's “beckoning nose” enticed judges, who relished the “sharp, fruity and dark chocolate notes” in the mouth and were left wanting more of this brilliant coffee with no bitter aftertaste.

Out of 10,000 products entered into Great Taste 2016, Under Milkwood was celebrated as the best tasting product in its region at the Great Taste Golden Forks Dinner held on Monday 5 September at the Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington, where over 300 guests from the world of fine food gathered to hear the results of many months of rigorous judging.
