Poughkeepsie Coffee Lovers,
This Week’s Share
Thanks to your awesome feedback and requests for specific coffees last week, this week we’ve decided to roast our Peruvian beans! This coffee comes from the El Palto cooperative from the Cajamarca region in Peru. The El Palto cooperative was founded in 2003 by 35 farmers and now consists of 189 members, 40% of which are women. This coffee has notes of apple, chocolate, and brown sugar.
Big News – We’re At Adams!
We’re excited to announce that a few of our coffees will be available at Adams in Poughkeepsie starting this week. We hope that this opportunity helps us continue to engage people in our work to enhance revitalization efforts in Poughkeepsie and to bring high quality, mindfully sourced and produced coffee to Poughkeepsie.
As a CSCR member you have enabled this coffee roasting social enterprise to exist and to grow. We are so appreciative of your continued support. As we broaden our reach to strengthen this business and its impact in the community, we look forward to deepening our engagement with the CSCR member community. Together, the CSCR members experiment and try a wide variety of coffees fresh from the roaster, collaborate to make custom community blends, and share feedback that is used in business decisions, ultimately helping to navigate North River Roasters’ course. We look forward to bringing this community together around coffee as we introduce more engagement opportunities for our membership this summer and later on when we move into the Poughkeepsie Underwear Factory. (See below.)
Tasting Event Coming Soon
One thing we’ve been looking forward to is hosting a coffee tasting for our CSCR subscribers! Poughkidsie has agreed to host us for an event in the near future. We’ll bring some coffees we already have and some samples of new coffees so we can compare and contrast, find out what we like, and get your feedback on what new coffees we should bring to Poughkeepsie for our members! We’ll reach out soon with a few date options to see what is best for everyone.
Thank you so much for your continued support!
