Real Farmers. Real Food. Real Fun.
Grab-a-Java Coffee beans available in the Market Info booth for a couple weeks yet until Dave returns for the start of the outdoor season on May 11th.
This coffee is imported from a Women’s Cooperative in South and Central America. The Co-op was initiated to give women who worked the coffee plantations fair value for their time and talent. As well, Grab-a-Java donates a percentage of total sales to the Fraser Valley Women’s Resource Society who provide safe haven for abused women and dependent children.
To celebrate our partnership with Grab-a-Java, here is a quick coffee drink recipe for days when you need a little extra treat.
Peppermint Chocolate Coffee
1 Tbsp Chocolate Syrup
2 Tbsp peppermint syrup or peppermint baking chips
½ cup hot fresh-brewed Grab-a-Java coffee
Whipped cream for garnish
Shaved chocolate for garnish
To a coffee mug, add chocolate syrup, peppermint syrup, and coffee. Stir together. Top with a dollop of whipped cream and chocolate shavings. Serve immediately.
