Coffee at the Co-op



Starting tomorrow, March 11, the Co-op will be offering a variety of brewed coffees. Our new paper cups, with above logo, are a benefit of belonging to the National Cooperative Grocers Association (NCGA). While Co-ops belonging to NCGA maintain their autonomy, they reap the benefits of a "virtual chain" such as these great cups.

We will also be offering month long "coffee cards" that will enable the holder to grab a great cup of fair-trade organic coffee as often as they please.

Cool beans! (so to speak) What are you all brewing? Any Hubba Hubba or Kickin' A** coffee?

Oops, I meant Kicking Horse coffee. But it does kick a**--great stuff!

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the Kicking Horse Coffee is on its way out. We will not be reordering it when this batch is gone. We do not buy the coffee directly and the distributer we get it from has raised the price of shipping substantially without telling us ahead of time (and believe me when I tell you that I've spoken with them about the cost of shipping on a number of occasions, so it could have been mentioned). With the latest increase we have to raise the price of their coffee to nearly $20/lb with almost 40% of that price coming from the shipping. Not to mention they were sending us unsealed bags and generally were unhelpful. Never fear though, we will be replacing it with more locally roasted Bodhi Tree beans!!!

Oh and i forgot to mention, we'll generally be brewing the coffee that is on sale for the month, a decaf, and a third coffee that will be changing periodically. At the moment it is Bodhi Tree's delicious Hubba Hubba Fair Trade blend.
