It's no secret; we love coffee. We care very deeply about it – finding it, roasting it, blending it, and certainly serving it fresh to our amazing customers (at our coffeehouse).
... But that isn't all we're about ... far from it! Beyond our love for the craft, there's another reason we started doing this all: we noticed that fair trade and organic coffee wasn't readily available in our area and we wanted to change that and make it affordable to all who wanted it. As we've said before, coffee is one of the most heavily pesticide treated crops in agriculture, and if people don't have a choice to buy organic coffee, there can be health consequences down the line. And, if we don't consider our impact on both farmers and the environment, as the Fair Trade certification accounts for, we're making coffee an unsustainable privilege rather than a force for good in the world.
Wintergreen Blend 🌲🌲🌲
20% of Proceeds Donated To The Shoreline Greenway Trail
Say hello to our first Community Blend of 2021! Ta-dah! The Wintergreen Blend is here! Evergreen trees are one of the most beautiful parts of our winter landscape in New England and a symbol of the resilience of life — no matter the conditions, the pines stand tall and invite us into the great outdoors, even in the colder months of the year. We let them serve as our inspiration when crafting the Wintergreen Blend.
Winter is an amazing time: the holidays, the scenery, the food — for these reasons and more, we look forward to these chillier months each year.
We want to use our Wintergreen Blend as an opportunity to spread awareness to people all across the state to get outside, enjoy the natural wonders around us, play, have fun (respecting social distance), and let the great outdoors be a part of what keeps us collectively well.
To support this initiative we are contributing 20 percent of all sales from the blend to the Shoreline Greenway Trail, a beautiful 25-mile hiking, biking, picnic, and nature-observation trail extending from New Haven all the way to Madison. If you've ever visited it, you know what a special stretch of land this is, and we want to see more of you out there with us enjoying it! We also want to see it kept in the shape it deserves, so Connecticut can enjoy it for decades to come.
