We have a new kid in town:
NICARAGUA FARA ESTATE RAINFOREST ALLIANCE
Fara Coffee has been growing 100% SHG Arabica shade-grown coffee beans on their 3 family-owned farms: El Diamante, San Francisco, and Santa Rita in the mountainous rainforest of Matagalpa for 5 generations. Through the Fara Foundation, 100% of the proceeds go back to the community in healthcare, food assistance, education, and eldercare. Fara prioritized Rainforest Alliance certification to reinforce their aim to conserve ecosystems by protecting healthy soils, rivers and wildlife and promote dignified living conditions for farm workers and neighboring rural communities.
Profile Notes: mild citrus, dark chocolate, black tea, clean in a medium roast
COLD BREW COFFEE
Phew! It's hot out there and a perfect time to try making cold brew coffee. The result is a smooth but hearty cup and can even be heated up should a hot beverage be required.
Garry T suggested we put together a "How To" and a sampler pack so here it is:
In a mason jar combine 1/2 cup coffee (ground for the press) to 2 cups cold water or 1 part coffee to 4 parts water. Let stand overnight then pour through a paper filter and Voila! This is a concentrate so it can be mixed 1:1 with cold milk, cream, Baileys, ice cream....
Sampler Packs include 4 pouches (4 ounces in each) of a variety of blends and roasts for kitchen alchemie purposes and they are $24/each. Please let us know if you prefer ground or beans.
Just so you all know...CASH IS KING if that's a possibility for payment purposes at the door...cheques and e transfers are also good options. We, of course, still take credit cards and paypal payments...there are so many ways to wrench payment from you for coffee!
