CSCR This Week: Fair Trade, Organic, RFA, Honey Processed Peru

Greetings POK Coffee Lovers,

This Week’s Roast - This week we bring you Fair Trade, Organic and Rainforest Alliance Honey Processed Peru with notes of raspberry, dark chocolate and cherry.  This coffee is grown by Vidal Cordova of the COOPAFSI partnership, a young leader among coffee growers in Peru and a member of the COOPAFSI board of directors.  This is a micro lot so enjoy it while supplies last!

 

Coffee News – Did you know scientists are working on developing fuel cells using microbes and coffee production waste water to make electricity?  The microbes eat the waste in the water and generate electricity as a result. In the lab the fuel cell costs over $400 but one of the scientists found that similar results were achieved using a fuel cell made with $3 worth of materials like ceramic and plastic.  This means coffee producers could generate their own, sustainable electricity.  The scientists from the University of Surrey are looking for funding to build a prototype in Colombia. 

 

We hope that you continue to stay safe and healthy.

Here's to another cup – virtually together,

The NRR Team
