We’re turning a deeper shade of green.

THINK ABOUT IT
When you have your morning coffee and toss your paper cup in the trash, it’s joining 14.4 billion other disposable sippers. That number is expected to grow to 23 billion by 2010. Cherry Hill Coffee wants to help change those habits.

Last fall, Cherry Hill Coffee went “green”, offering a certified fair trade organic coffee line-up. In addition, we also introduced a 100% compostable cup. The ecotainer™ is an eco-friendly to-go coffee cup made with renewable materials and a revolutionary corn-based liner. Conventional hot paper cups use a waterproof lining made from a petroleum-based plastic that is not sustainable. The petrochemicals used to manufacture these cups could heat 8,300 homes for one full year.

Made with a bio-plastic fashioned out of corn, the ecotainer™ cup can, under the proper conditions, break down into water, carbon dioxide and organic matter. This will divert countless coffee cups away from landfills that could instead be composted and returned to the earth to make quality topsoil.

BUT WHAT GOOD IS HAVING A COMPOSTABLE CUP WITH NOWHERE TO COMPOST IT? Without local municipal or corporate support, the positive advantages of this pioneering technology are lost. So, Cherry Hill Coffee recently partnered with a local compost and recycling organization to establish a grassroots waste management program.

Coffee grounds and roasting by-products such as chaff, along with our compostable ecotainer™ cups and a wide variety of organic material are picked up weekly and will be converted into nutritious topsoil for local farms. Help us out – and the planet too – by composting your cup. We will be publishing a list of other participating cafés and restaurants soon. Stay tuned.

DON”T JUST TOSS IT, COMPOST IT!

Show your support (literally).

Coffee Fest 08 Wrap-Up

4 DAYS AND 137 ESPRESSOS LATER
Cherry Hill Coffee made it back from Coffee Fest in Seattle, WA just in time to get some zzz’s before another busy work week. It was a great chance for the CHC crew to get together and bond. There’s nothing like sharing some laughs and enjoying some tasty Mexican (and chi chi’s!) to build team spirit.

Our annual pilgrimage to Seattle always seems to inspire us in some way or another whether its experimenting with single origin espressos, or introducing a daily press here at the roastery (wait for it). So many ideas, so little time! Anyways, we want to thank Joe at Victrola for the personal tour of the roastery. It’s always great to compare notes and see what other roasters are up to. On our little tour of Capitol Hill, we got a look at the setup at Cafe Vita too and downed a quick shot at Stumptown before heading back to the show.

We met up with a lot of old friends and even made some new ones, like Tony at Barefoot Coffee (yes your shirt is on the way) and Travis and the gang at Portland Roasting who are also using compostable ecotainer™ cups. All in all it was a great trip and we’re all looking forward to 2009!
