Article: Roasting with Rusty

Written by Cafe Campesino on May 1, 2010 in Article |

Welcome to the (hopefully) much-anticipated second installment of “Roasting with Rusty”! In case you haven’t seen or heard yet, we are now in possession of the finest Tanzania Peaberry available to us. And I confirm for you its deliciousness! However, this is not the primary topic at hand. This month, you will be receiving a lesson in moral responsibility from your always courteous and selfless roaster.

The lesson is on giving. We should be people helping people! “How can we do this?”, you may ask. Well, you can start by purchasing some of the finest coffee known to man (ours, of course). If you don’t know about the whole “fair trade” thing, check it out. Secondly, if you are in the area and don’t think that buying fair trade, organic coffee is enough, we have these sweet burlap coffee bags you can receive for a small donation. These bags can be used for any sort of heavy duty carrying (they hold over 130 lbs. each) or can offer some quality decorative appeal. Either way, at three bucks per bag (or 2 for $5) plus shipping, you’re winning big. Especially when you consider that 100% of that cost is a donation towards buying reading glasses for coffee farmers unable to afford these sorts of “luxuries”. See? People helping people is good stuff.

I’d like to apologize for this shameless attempt to guilt you into making the world a better place. But everybody has to do their part. Let’s get to it!

That’s all from the roaster with the moster (stole that one from a customer). I hope your long nights are sleep-filled and your long mornings are made tolerable with a fantastic cup of our coffee!


Next month:
The tale of a boy and his bean.
