Evans Brothers Coffee Wins 2016 Good Food Award

The Good Food Awards are handed out annually to the country’s top craft food producers. Not only are the producers required to excel in a blind tasting competition, but they must also demonstrate they are “respectful of the environment, and connected to communities and cultural traditions.” This year, Evans Brothers, artisanal coffee roasters in Sandpoint, Idaho, were honored for their Kenya Gatundu Karinga AB coffee. Randy Evans describes its flavor profile this way: “super juicy, floral, citrus and chocolate.” You can see the complete list of 2016 Good Food Awards winners here.

El Gallo Giro of Kuna ID Now Enrique’s

Ana and Enrique Contreras have operated what is generally considered to be the finest Mexican restaurant in the Treasure Valley (a region of western Idaho, around Boise, that borders eastern Oregon). That restaurant, El Gallo Giro, has been leased by the Contreras for 17 years. Last year, they decided to buy the restaurant and building outright and, in honor of Enrique Contreras’ efforts over the last two decades, they have chosen to rename the eatery Enrique’s. They hope to move to larger quarters, with a big patio, a few blocks away early next year.
