Poughkeepsie Coffee Lovers,
This Week’s Share
This week we are roasting up our Oaxacan coffee! We love supporting Organic, Fair Trade cooperative farming in the Mexican state from where many Poughkeepsie locals originate. This coffee is produced by Unidad Ecológica para el Sector Café Oaxaqueño, also known as UNECAFE. This is an association of small coffee producers founded in 2011. UNECAFE has nearly 2,198 members, forty percent of which are women.
One of our awesome distribution locations, Poughkidsie, is hiring for their manager position! Stacey, the owner says “the right personality and skillset are more important than paper degrees.” If you know anyone that enjoys kids and offering their skills to great local businesses either send them here, or let us know and we’d be happy to connect them to this opportunity!
