It's been a busy couple of weeks here at Carrboro Coffee! Here are some of the projects we've been working on:
We're excited to announce that Scott at CCR recently completed the CQI Coffee Processing Generalist Certification taught by the Coffee Quality Institute (CQI)!
We've been working closely with CQI for various industry quality programs around the world, and take every opportunity to continue to learn and evolve our knowledge base to better help our farmer partners and the industry at large, with the goal of improving quality through the entire supply chain. You can read more about it here.
In our continued efforts to support our community, and in partnership with Townsend Bertram's 30th Anniversary Celebration, we sponsored the Meadow Lark event. Meadow Lark is Learning Outside’s annual scholarship fundraising event, where the mission is to provide children with quality outdoor experiences that enhance their lives and learning, instill a love of the natural world and promote lifelong stewardship. Our contributions added to afternoon of delightful food and beverages that over 4100 people enjoyed and the event raised nearly $12,000! You can learn more about our recent collaboration with Townsend Bertram and Learning outside, below.
And, finally, our cafes are thrilled to be nominated for Indy Week's Best of the Triangle! Both Open Eye Cafe and Caffe Driade have been nominated for Best Coffee Shop in Orange/Chatham County, and we'd really appreciate your votes. Check it out here, and be sure to vote for all your other local favorites!
