Try South Philly Food Co-op’s new coffee blend at coffee workshop this week

One of the South Philly Food Co-op‘s recent additions is a CSA-style coffee program in partnership with¬†Philly Fair Trade Roasters. Since you can now order this custom roast for pickup on a monthly-basis, the co-op wants you to be able to learn more about their new blend of coffee, in addition to information on different varieties of beans and the methods of brewing.


Adam Lees of Philly Fair Trade Roasters, in partnership with the South Philly Food Co-op, will be leading a workshop at Chhaya at 1819 E. Passyunk Ave. on Thursday, September 22 from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The two hour-long class will take you through the methods of brewing, tell you the difference between french press and pour over coffee and more. This event also gives you the opportunity to try this special South Philly blend of coffee prior to ordering it for pickup through the co-op.

Admission to the event is $20 for members of the co-op and $25 for non-members. In addition to learning some new tips and tricks on coffee roasting at the workshop, you’ll also walk away from the event with a half pound of coffee beans. Tickets can be purchased here.

Can’t make the event and still want to check out the co-op’s new coffee blend? You can find them set up at the singing fountain farmers market on Wednesdays.

      I’m still waiting for a different food co-op to setup shop so I can cash out from when I joined 7 years ago.

      These food co-ops need to examine another approach. Maybe instead of starting with a huge space, try a smaller investment, smaller space and grow it? It’s unfair to give contributors/owners a date that pushes five years beyond the original forecast.
