Up Coming Events
Next Audubon Meeting: Tuesday December 9, 2014
Once again, the Coeur d’Alene Audubon Society is selling Birds and Beans shade grown, organic, fair- trade certified coffee. We do it as a fundraiser and to help protect bird habitat in Central America. 12 oz. Bags are $10.50 for regular and 11.50 for decaf. It can be either whole bean or ground and you have your choice of extra fine, fine, medium and course grinds. Two pound bags are also available for $25 for regular and $27 for decaf.
The five varieties available are:
Scarlet Tanager – French Roast (described as intense flavor with smoky aromatica undertones)
Chestnut-Sided Warble – Medium roast (a complex blend with a subtle nutty flavor)
American Redstart – Light roast (smooth and balanced)
Wood Thrush – Breakfast roast (delicate, complex full flavored)
Baltimore Oriole – French roast decaf (water process decaffeination)
Birds and Beans is the only coffee brand in the U.S. that buys and roasts only independently certified Smithsonian Migratory Bird Friendly certified coffee beans. They are committed to habitat protection and public education about birds, as well as supporting small family farms and co-ops that grow shade grown coffee. An added bonus is their coffee is very good!
If you would like to order, please e-mail George Sayler at firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com> . Please specify what variety or varieties you would like, ground or whole bean, what grind, and what size bags. Payment can be made upon receipt of the coffee. We will be selling the coffee throughout the coming Audubon season, i.e., through May. We hope you will enjoy your coffee and the knowledge that you are helping protect birds and their habitat.
