by Admin

Golden Fork Nominee! El Placer ‘Yellow Fruits’ scooped a 3-star Great Taste Award earlier this month, and, as one of this year’s highest-scoring products, has been nominated for a coveted Golden Fork the highest accolades in the food and drink world.

14,195 products were entered into this year’s Great Taste Awards and put through the competition’s rigorous blind judging process. Yellow Fruits was praised by judges to be “An extraordinary aroma of tropical fruits,” and was one of only 248 products to receive a Three-star Great Taste award in 2023.

Described as “A massive fruity punch on the nose”, this Colombian coffee was a big hit with the Great Taste judges. Yellow Fruits is produced from Caturra Arabica beans by Sebastian Ramirez and his El Placer farm team, based in Calarca, Quindio. Sebastian is a true coffee pioneer, at the top of his game right now, crafting complex, yet delicious and drinkable coffees.

There is a very limited amount of the Yellow Fruits available on our Webshop currently, with more on the way in a few weeks – we hope you enjoy the coffee.

We will wait with bated breath as all will be revealed on Monday 11 September at the Great Taste Golden Forks awards ceremony held at Battersea Arts Centre, London (industry event only).


In total, we won a grand total of 16 Great Taste Awards this year – including four three-star awards, nine two-star awards, and three one-star awards! For a full list check our Award Section here.
