Hello everyone and welcome back to the Weekly Grind! Also happy birthday, Behind the Beans! That's right, this blog is officially a year old. Thanks for reading and supporting us for a full year already!
Help Us Support Guatemala!
As you've likely heard, Guatemala has recently suffered from a serious volcanic eruption that has resulted in tragic loss of life and large swabs of land being covered in ash. This includes the area that we get our Guatemala Antigua coffee from, which is obviously devastating for local farmers. We'd like to help these farmers out, so we'll be donating $5 to Radical Missions for every bag of Guatemalan coffee we sell (both online & in-store) during the month of June! This non-profit is using 100% of donations to purchase food, bottled water and medical supplies for coffee growers in the area.
Consider buying a bag next time you're here, or, if you'd like to donate directly, click here. Also, feel free to click here for the Guatemalan arm of the Red Cross (scroll down to see where to make an international donation), or here for a list of verified GoFundMe pages!
Happy Father's Day!
Now is the perfect time to grab some beans for all the coffee-loving dads in your life! If he's also a bourbon fan, then we highly suggest our sweet and oaky Double Bourbon Barrel Blend. This bourbon barrel aged Sumatran bean is a perfect afternoon or desert coffee, and also makes for delicious cold brew! Not sure what he likes? Consider grabbing an Armeno mug, or t-shirt! Or, come on by the mill and let us help you figure out the perfect fit for his coffee taste.
Also, make sure to check out Anna Banana's Father's Day themed creations! Our personal favorites are the "Luke I Am Your Father" Star Wars chocolates and the chocolate tool boxes.
If you love us let us know!
There's a new feature on the Northborough Guide that allows you to recommend the local businesses around town that you know and love! We'd be thrilled if you decided to head on over and give your two cents about Armeno.
