Co-op Goodness in Every Cup

What's In Store - New in Bulk

peruvian-natural-process-coffeePeruvian family farmers to you, try Coyona Peruvian Naturals coffee. It's an amazing Fair Trade product at an amazing price.

Don't miss a new coffee with a great, unique taste (and a nice price — $7.99/lb!) that's slated to have a limited run here at GreenStar. Coyona Peruvian Naturals comes directly from the small village of 500 that I visited with Equal Exchange last year. The location of this region of Peru, just on the edge of jungle and desert, means the beans can dry naturally within the juicy sweetness of the coffee cherry, in a quick and uniform manner. These beans (the ones the farmers usually keep for themselves!) offer a stronger, deeper flavor. Only a handful of U.S. coops get to partake of these beans, roasted by Equal Exchange in the French Roast style, which caramelizes the sweetness and brings out the fruity and deep earth flavors. This micro-lot buy (with no organic certification paperwork because of its size) has really helped the farmers of Coyona financially! This is just one more way that we, as a co-op, differ from a regular food store in our practices and impact.
