We are proud to introduce the Next Generation Roast, a special Partner Brand coffee with fellow Certified B Corporation, New Seasons Market. We teamed up to purchase a special lot of 2500 pounds from Young Farmers in Guatemala, their first harvest as a group. $1 from each bag of coffee sold will support the establishment of a Young Farmers Fund with our partners at De la Gente in Guatemala. The fund will be set up to provide ongoing education for these farmers, as well as a source of sustainable micro-loans so they can purchase land and equipment.
First up in our Sustainability in the Café series, we dig into the meaning of Zero Waste in the café. A couple years ago, when our café at Seven Corners was just an idea, we knew from the beginning that we wanted to set out to build a café that was a bit different from the rest. We set out with an ambitious sustainability initiative to become a Zero Waste café by taking specific actions to reduce and limit our waste. Learn more about these actions, such as our to-go cup upcharge, and more!
Watch a presentation by Karen Lickteig and Camille Bevans on Zero Waste at Nossa Familia Coffee’s Seven Corners Café, at the first-ever Zero Waste Conference held in October 2018 in Portland, Oregon.
