School Grounds Blend Viennese Roast Coffee
At Cafe Campesino, we are proud that a portion of the proceeds from every pound of School Grounds sold will go directly to Furlow Charter School. And we want to offer congratulations to all the students who participated in the art contest with special thanks to FCS scholar Adaja Brown for creating the beautiful artwork for the label that adorns this fair trade, organic coffee blend.
The School Grounds Blend, designed for our friends at Furlow Charter School here in our hometown of Americus, GA, is a complex and delightful coffee, created by combining beans from Café Campesino’s producer partners in Africa and Latin America. It carries distinct aromas of caramel and brown sugar – sweet and warm to get you ready for a scholarly day (or any day, for that matter).
The first sips of School Grounds are like a semi-sweet baker’s chocolate, full of flavor, mellowing out into a smooth fruitiness (think raspberries and lime) and finishing with a toasted nut aftertaste. This Viennese roast is a crowd pleaser, not too light and not too dark. This lively coffee retains some of the fruity notes and bright acidity characteristic of African coffees, but mellowed perfectly by the chocolatey tones and velvety body of the Latin American coffees. This coffee is a delight by itself, or with cream.
