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 San Martin de Pangoa, Peru (CAC Pangoa) and Sidamo, Ethiopia (SCFCU). 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 Ethiopian coffee, but mellowed perfectly by the chocolatey tones and velvety body of the Peruvian coffee. This coffee is a delight by itself, or with cream.
To purchase some coffee locally, please contact Furlow Charter School at (229) 931-8667 or visit Cafe Campesino's downtown Americus coffee shop located at 134 W Lamar St.
Did you know you can trace our current coffee lots to follow the path of our coffee beans from crop to cup? In fact, you can find all of our coffee contracts at fairtradeproof.org. We take pride in knowing exactly where our coffee comes from and sharing that information with our customers. We believe that transparency makes fairness possible, because it makes hiding the truth impossible.
Cafe Campesino is proud to be one of the founding members of Cooperative Coffees, a cooperative of independent roasters throughout the US and Canada who are committed to fair trade as a long-term partnership between farmers and roasters. For us, paying a fair price is just the beginning of this relationship. Our trade model includes pre-financing, sharing information, and working together to create higher quality coffee and build sustainable trade relationships for the benefit of farmers and their exporting cooperatives, families, and communities.
