posted January 23 2012
We have started using carbon credits to offset our greenhouse gas emissions! And we're excited to be part of Taking Root's initiative to promote C02 Responsible products and services. For more info check out our C02 Responsible microsite and read our newsletter.
December's coffee of the month is San Marcos. This delicious coffee from comes from Apecaform (Asociación de Pequeños Caficultores Orgánicos Maya-Mames) in Guatemala. It's sweet, well rounded and has a hint of cocoa with a smooth full body. Perfect for any time of day!
Coffee farmers in Guatemala are dealing with roya (leaf rust) disease. This is a very aggressive disease that attacks the coffee trees and - in most cases – kills them. You can help the farmers that grow your coffee by making a loan to Grow Ahead. Grow Ahead is currently collecting money to pre-finance a shipment from Apecaform to North America. By making a $25 or $50 loan by December 31st you can make a big difference to the coffee farmers of Apecaform!
Bean North's Cafe in the Woods is open during this holiday season!
On Saturday December 14 and Sunday December 15 between 11am and 5pm, Michael and Helen will be in the Bean North cafe to assist you in making a loan to Grow Ahead.
