Cooperative Coffee Roasters’ Virtue blend is a delicious medium-roasted coffee featuring notes of dark chocolate and almonds. For us, what makes Cooperative Coffee’s custom blends stand out is their small company’s focus on freshness. Did you know that coffee, like most plants, is seasonal? So, coffees from Ethiopia have a seasonal harvest, as do coffees grown in Colombia and Kenya. Many coffee roasters use inexpensive, past-crop coffees as blenders, which makes their blends dull. At Cooperative Coffee, they reformulate each blend every few months so that the blend contains only fresh, in-season coffees. The amazing thing is that they do this while maintaining the character of the blend. We are so excited to be offering Virtue in a cup. If you enjoy coffee, you will love Cooperative!
Chicken Bridge Bakery is a NCDA certified home bakery run by Rob & Monica Segovia-Welsh. They focus on building the local grain economy by supporting North Carolina farmers and millers. They source their whole grain, stone milled flours from Carolina Ground (Hendersonville) and Red Tail Grains (Chapel Hill). Their other organic flours and grains are milled by Lindley Mills (Graham). They use fermentation methods in their breads to increase flavor and digestibility and bake all of their breads in a wood fired brick oven. Chicken Bridge Bakery has been feeding their community for over 12 years and we’re so excited to be offering their bread to serve at your table. We’re now offering these three signature breads every week! Click here to learn more about Chicken Bridge Bakery!
$7 / loaf
Farmhouse Sourdough – Their classic hearth baked sourdough made with a mixture of locally grown and milled wheat and rye flours and leavened with their sourdough culture. This bread has a nice dark crust with an open, creamy crumb.
Multigrain Sourdough – This is their classic sourdough with the addition of whole grains and a touch of sorghum, naturally leavened with their sourdough culture. This bread is especially flavorful when toasted.
Sprouted Wheat Multigrain Pan Loaf – This bread is made with a special wheat flour that’s first sprouted, dried and then milled by their friends at Lindley Mills. Sprouted grains not only add great flavor but they also unlock nutrients in the wheat that our bodies can’t typically access. In this loaf, they pair this flour with seven whole grains for a healthy, satisfying sandwich bread. (pictured left)
